In the UK, only 36% of women believe gender diversity is important to their CEO in oil and gas. The time for change is now. The POWERful Women UK is a network helping to drive gender diversity.

POWERful Women aims for 40% of middle management roles and 30% of executive board positions to be occupied by females by the year 2030. And they are taking action to make it happen.

Right now in the UK, females make up 47% of the workforce. Yet, only 22% of women work in the oil and gas industry – a significantly smaller share than almost any other sector. Of these:

  • 26% work for international oil companies.
  • 13% work for national companies.
  • 16% are in oilfield services.
  • Less than 20% hold senior management positions.
  • Only 7% are board members.
  • 1% of CEOs are female.

POWERful Women is addressing the under-utilization of a critical pool of talent. Now is the time to change.
