Shaping the future of the energy workforce

As the world focuses on creating a net-zero future, the role of diversity and inclusion in the energy industry is taking on increasing importance. Research suggests that a shrinking talent pipeline is one of the main challenges facing the oil and gas industry. As one of the least diverse sectors, questions around diversity and inclusion continue to emerge. 

At ADIPEC 2021’s Forum for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, the conversation will go beyond gender stereotypes; instead, it will focus on the role of equity and what that means for the industry. Discussions on how to secure equal opportunities, reinforce corporate accountability and form strategic collaborations will help define the future direction of the energy workforce as the energy transition reinforces the need for new capabilities. 

The ADIPEC Forum for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion programme will address the structural inequalities that the industry is facing and what is required to support organisations in creating equitable solutions that attract and retain talent, building a resilient and sustainable energy industry.

Creating a diverse, equitable and inclusive workforce

icon09:00 - 15:20

Over the years, more companies have become increasingly involved in advocating diversity and inclusion. Although there is no roadmap to an effective strategy, it is without question that inclusion and diversity go hand in hand. However, with the shift to include equity in the mix, diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) creates broader challenges for an organisation’s environmental, social and corporate agenda.

In response, forward thinking companies are reinventing their business models to build the energy workforce of the future, establishing equitable strategies that will secure a diversified and inclusive workforce, aligned with the adoption of new capabilities as new digital technologies emerge and the energy transition progresses.

Interactive Roundtable Discussions

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion industry leaders will host three exclusive roundtables, running simultaneously and focused on the following topics:

Factoring DEI in the social criteria of ESG

Roundtable Discussions - Conference Hall B

With industries moving towards net-zero, energy companies are presented with a unique opportunity to evaluate strengths and address weaknesses in their operating models and their workforces. The energy sector is an evolving industry with many players looking to constantly diversify their business opportunities, secure their investments and attract the right talent to remain competitive.

  • How can organisations identify and set the baseline to measure and report DEI? How does this impact the ESG criteria being followed by investors, partners and targeted markets?
  • Is DEI a strategy or an initiative? How can organisations change the perception of DEI as a HR-driven programme and shift it to a strategic standpoint?
  • In what ways can DEI help organisations foster and convey their reputation as socially responsible businesses?
  • How can organisations use ESG performance as a competitive advantage in attracting talent?

Attendee insights:

An important conversation looking into DEI as a key factor in strengthening an organisation’s ESG proposition and its profound impacts in value creation.

Closing the gender gap: a catalyst for decarbonisation

Roundtable Discussions - Conference Hall B

Climate action and the energy transition offers opportunities to develop new capabilities within the energy industry’s workforce. Women have an invaluable breadth of knowledge and perspectives to contribute to the industry as decision makers, stakeholders and experts in all disciplines. Studies have shown women to be effective leaders of equitable and sustainable solutions. But creating gender diversity and inclusion in a male-dominated industry that does not have a strong track record of encouraging and nurturing diverse talent, remains a challenge.

  • What can be done in order to magnify the significant correlation between gender and environment? How can the recognition of this correlation support the relevance of gender perspective in climate change and the energy transition?
  • Can gender-balanced boardrooms help accelerate decarbonisation efforts? How can organisations encourage more men to advocate for gender equity and equal representation in the boardroom?

Attendee insights:

A must-attend session to understand how important gender equity is in achieving sustainable development to combat climate change and fuel the energy transition.

As the world bounces back from the challenges caused by the pandemic, organisations are recognising the value in strengthening their commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion in the workplace. Although the new normal of location agnostic working environment is a great equaliser, it also emphasises the need for a more inclusive work culture as structural inequalities become more apparent.  This session will address a number of critical issues shaped by the pandemic:

  • What can companies do to permanently embrace the changing future of work as employees demand more flexibility around when and where they work? What are the challenges in adopting a hybrid work model?
  • How can companies support minorities in the workforce who are marginalised due to the pandemic?
  • How can governments and organisations support dual career households who require more in terms of childcare, home schooling and mental health support?
  • How can corporations ensure network safety for their business and employees now that operations are predominantly virtual and at a high risk of cyber-attacks?

Building a sustainable hydrogen economy
Hydrogen Session

Hydrogen Economist Keynote Address Monday 15 November 2021

As a clean energy carrier, feedstock and fuel, green hydrogen can facilitate the large-scale integration of renewables into the energy system, offering new solutions for hard-to-decarbonise industries, market diversification, security of energy supply and economic growth. Although technology, economic and policy challenges have to be overcome, the potential of green hydrogen promises an array of opportunities, not only for businesses but also for countries as they seek to meet Paris Agreement targets and progress towards net-zero commitments. What role should green hydrogen have in the future energy mix? How can governments support each stage of technology readiness, market penetration and market growth to promote hydrogen use? How can green hydrogen help NOCs and IOCs future-proof their businesses and make them fit-for-purpose in a zero-carbon future?

Leadership Debate - Conference Hall B

Both gas and hydrogen have been identified as the fuels of the future. Both are seen as low-emissions alternatives to coal and crude oil, and governments and companies are investing heavily in promoting their use. However, both energy sources have their drawbacks; gas, while cleaner than crude oil, remains a fossil fuel, and emissions across its value change can be significant. By contrast, decarbonised hydrogen, has immense potential, but the technology and investments required to make it broadly commercial and competitive are huge. What will be the fuel of choice by 2030?
