Workforce Energy

For a more diverse and inclusive workforce

Workforce Energy Expert Group

The Workforce Energy Task Force guides and accelerates the energy transition by embracing and expanding measures to attract and retain talent by creating workplaces with a greater diversity, equity, and inclusion (DE&I) focus. By building on the foundation set by industry safety measures, Workforce Energy is creating unified voice for DE&I across the oil and gas industry.

2022 highlights

This year, Workforce Energy’s focus was on conducting research for its first major project: to determine the current industry baseline for DE&I. With volunteers from our Member Companies, we examined 44 companies from across the oil and gas value chain, and conducted interviews, analysed public disclosures and previous DE&I work, engaged with thought leaders and other industry associations, all in service of completing our DE&I baseline report, which we expect to publish in Q1 2023.

2023 work plan

Following the publication of our DE&I baseline study in Q1, we will turn our attention to an industry-wide inclusivity benchmarking project, followed by the launch of an annual inclusivity survey. We will also launch a ‘community of practice’ DE&I forum, through which we hope to identify recommended practices and identify specific KPIs.

We intend to promote DE&I improvements as a business imperative through thought leadership and outreach. All of this will be complemented by an annual report tracking industry progress in securing the workforce of the future.

We were quickly corrected and learned that a feminist is someone who believes in the power of women as much as they believe in the power of anyone else. It’s about respect and equality.
