Women in Energy

An integral part of the Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition & Conference (ADIPEC), over the last four years, Women In Energy has proven to become the global meeting place of the finest minds in the oil and gas industry, appreciating the continuous contribution of women within the industry across technical and non-technical functions.

Launched in 2013, ADIPEC hosted the first ‘Women In Industry: A Journey to Leadership’ evening, an event that took a close look at the lives and careers of three international women in the oil and gas sector.

In 2014, ADIPEC celebrated its 30th Anniversary and the second edition of Women In Industry which explored the role of women in oil and gas from 1984 (the year ADIPEC was launched) and fast forwarded a further 30 years to 2044 to gain insight into how the role of women in the sector might evolve.

In 2015, ADIPEC continued to develop Women In Industry initiatives reaching out to an increased number of women, and men, encouraging them to build upon their career choices to achieve their maximum potential.

In 2016, ADIPEC Women In Energy focused on the contributions women made across technical and strategic arenas of the oil and gas industry including upstream, downstream, investment and finance, administrative and HR functions.

With ADIPEC 2017 marking the 5th edition of the event, this year Women In Energy will be held on Wednesday, 15 November 2017 – Day 3 of ADIPEC - at the Al Ma’ared Hall located in Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC). 



This panel discussion, brought together business leaders, scientists and innovators to discuss strengths that each gender pool brings to the industry and specialist areas of innovation.
