Thankful for a seat at the table

This is the time of year for gratitude. In America, we’re celebrating Thanksgiving – a time when families and friends gather to share what they are thankful for. There’s something significant about this custom. And it is bigger than the holiday it symbolizes. You see,...

Companies needs to step up their game

Today I'm at the Wall Street Journal's Women in the Workplace forum to discuss the 2018 results of the latest survey. (Spoiler alert: it's not good.) Our friend Sheryl Sandberg says it's time for companies to Lean In. I couldn't agree more.  But there is good news for energy.

The Rise from Ground Zero

It’s been seventeen years since 9/11.  A horrific event in the history of our world. We woke that morning to a world that felt safe, and by the end of the day, we all knew life would never be the same. We faced Ground...

My year of two Harveys: #MeToo and #HoustonStrong

It's been a year since we met Harvey. He was the monster that battered our city, dropped more than 50 inches of rain, flooded thousands of Texans, claimed at least 82 lives and cost billions.

It’s time black women get their fair share

Fast forward to 2018, and we're in the thick of a new revolution for women.  But in my generation and in my lifetime, I want this movement to be about equality for ALL women.

Speaking Out, Taking Action and Socializing Change

I’m taking part in a very special activity— the Speak Out and Take Action Summit happening in the Energy Capital.  Big thanks to James Tastard, an CHRO in energy who has championed this conversation as a male advocate for the SHIFT we're seeing in our society and workplaces.

OP-ED: Reflections on #OTC50 … three years and one year later

It was a year ago I called out a man online who thought leveraging women and alcohol during OTC to sell his equipment was a good idea. Since then, Cosby, Weinstein and other 'facepalm' stories have followed. The fact is, our society, has said "enough". It demands to see a more equal, harassment-free world. We are more driven by social good than ever...

What’s a woman’s worth?

I still remember my first negotiation for a higher salary. The bureau chief for the Boston Globe’s Washington office offered me a position, and I told him I’d think about it and soon walked out of the office and got back on the plane back home.

The stunning lack of female leadership at the American Association of Petroleum Geologists

I recently received my annual election ballot from the American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG), an organization which I’ve been a part of for almost 20 years.

OP-ED: Everyone needs mentoring, despite accomplishments

This original piece ran in the Bizjournals on Feb 7, 2018. I hate asking for help. I’m sure you know a lot of women in business like me — you might be one yourself. We preach the need to ask for...
