Leadership Conference for Women in Oil and Gas

July 11 – July 12

EUCI is hosting their Leadership Conference for Women in Oil & Gas here in Denver at the Grand Hyatt on July 11 & 12th.

The oil & gas industry needs diverse workers to continue to innovate in a sector filled with transformation, but studies indicate that women make up only 15% of the workforce. Women leaders must work together to attract and advance female employees. The goal of this event is to help professionals advance their careers in a traditionally male-dominated industry.
