- Organized by Energy Capital & Power and under the auspices of the Ministry of Mineral Resources and Petroleum, AOG 2021 comprises the first in-person energy event to take place in Angola in 2021 and is committed to accelerating Angolan energy progress in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Energy Capital & Power (ECP) is proud to announce the launch of a Women in Energy roundtable discussion at Angola Oil & Gas (AOG) 2021, taking place at Luanda´s Centro de Convenções de Talatona from the 9th to 10th of September. Led by female senior executives from Equinor, TotalEnergies, Energy Customer Solutions plc, and Oando Plc, the panel is expected to drive a discussion on the role of women in the oil and gas industry, diving into current challenges as well as best examples from Angola, Africa and around the world.
Despite the energy sector being a historically male-dominated industry, women have been making significant gains in recent years, gradually taking up their rightful place at the higher echelons of energy sector leadership. The roundtable discussion aims to promote this progress, highlighting ongoing challenges faced by women in the industry and offering up key solutions.
ECP honors female energy leaders around the world and is committed to promoting women’s role in Africa’s energy future. As a signatory of the EqualBy30 Initiative – a global campaign that seeks to foster equal pay, equal leadership and equal opportunities in the global energy industry – ECP is focused on enhancing equality and inclusivity in Africa.
“All our events try to foster and promote the contributions and the role of women in the African and global energy sector and AOG 2021 is no exception. This fantastic panel will bring light to many current issues facing the industry today and highlight the bright future of women in energy in the years to come”, says Kelly-Ann Mealia, Chairperson and Acting-CEO of ECP.
