SPE Workshop: Women to Excel: Network, Diversify and Inspire 25 Mar 2018 Muscat, Oman

About the Workshop

The “Woman to Excel: Network, Diversify and Inspire” one-day workshop, held alongside the SPE EOR Conference at OGWA, will address both the challenges and opportunities faced by many women in our industry throughout their careers and how to inspire and attract female talent, as well as the next generations. Whether it is creating effective and ever-evolving networks, allowing diversity and inclusion to generate opportunities or understanding different approaches to manage a successful career, the workshop will provide real insights as to how women can surpass expectations and have a positive impact on organisations. 

The workshop will feature keynote speakers and four interactive sessions with panellists and discussion leaders who will provide powerful and inspirational real-life stories, reflect on the challenges and achievements as well as exchange ideas and stimulate discussions across wide-ranging topics, which are important to our industry. There has been a shift in the demographics over time, both in the region and globally, and our industry needs to benefit from these changes and adapt, as it is clear that women bring both diverse perspectives and value to the workforce.

Be prepared to network, diversify your approach, and be inspired!
