Women in Energy
An integral part of the Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition and Conference (ADIPEC), the Women In Energy Conference provides a global platform for the finest minds of the oil and gas industry to convene, connect, engage in conversations, and put forward solutions towards building a diverse and inclusive oil and gas industry.
Launched in 2013 as an evening of discussion with three pioneering women in the oil and gas industry, over the past four years, the Women In Energy conference has grown to become a wide platform for collaboration, developing and mentoring women, and promoting growth opportunities for inclusion and diversity.

ADIPEC offers an excellent opportunity for companies from around the globe to exhibit products and to participate in conferences with like-minded professionals from the oil and gas sector. At the ADIPEC 2016 Women in Energy conference I had the pleasure of sharing my perspectives on women in leadership. It is important to articulate the role of women and how women can contribute with valuable insights – not only in the oil and gas sector, but in leadership and society in general. ADIPEC always brings a lot of interesting and relevant issues to the table and I am pleased to have been a part of the ADIPEC 2016.
The Women In Energy conference is a valuable forum for women across the region to meet each other and build a peer class network. It is also imperative that young women entering the energy sector learn about other women in leadership, they need role models to motivate them that they can succeed in this industry and it is worth the hard work.
ADIPEC 2016 Women In Energy conference by far surpassed my expectations. Both the organization and the participation of the audience were exceptional. During this event I had the great honour to talk about women participation in the petroleum industry with female Arab engineers from 26 to 42 years old. Because of these talks, now I am sure that the Abu Dhabi petroleum industry will count on a high level of female leaders in a very near future.
The conference was great opportunity not to hear from some of the role models but also a chance to network with other women and learn from their experiences.
I found the conference enlightening and enriching in listening to the breadth of roles and exciting careers that were presented by women’s presenters. The event was truly inspiring.
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.
