Conference Overview
The lack of women’s leadership in energy, which stands at just 11 percent, is not just a “women’s issue”. According to the Peterson Institute for International Economics report, women leaders can add 6% to the bottom line, which can make a real difference in this challenging time.
 
But if companies that financially perform best have the greatest numbers of women in leadership positions, why do women continue to lag behind in leadership and board roles? Projections show that at the current rate of advancement, women and men won’t be equally represented in leadership until 2085! The harsh reality is that the talent pipeline is leaking at all levels, and women just aren’t stepping into enough key roles that would allow them and their companies to realize their full potential. Why is that - and what can we do, as a collective group (men and women), to help women leaders advance?
 
“Men or women is not the main issue. What is more important is how we create the right culture and process that can inspire and motivate humans to work and engage with integrity, trust and commitment to achieve success.” EY Oil and Gas Gender Diversity Survey

9:30 -10:45 a.m. Social Media in Outreach – Law and Order
With the increasing use of social media for interpersonal communications and integration into our daily lives, it is prudent for entities to incorporate social media platforms into operations and project outreach planning. Whether for public or private sector project execution or for ongoing dialog, planned use of social media can greatly enhance stakeholder communications . . . if done with proper planning. While media should not take the place of legally imposed outreach, by either regulators or statutes, it can make that outreach less formal and more landowner friendly. While the potential for positive return is high, so too is the potential for legal missteps which can negatively impact project execution. This presentation will examine the nuances of social media usage in project execution, and understand how to harness its use for positive communications.

1:30 – 2:45 p.m. Discussion: Re-engaging Daily and the Importance of Resilience
Ever feel as if you are subject to unpredictable volatile tides in your career? Improved communications and technology is increasing the pace of business and requiring a re-design of how we manage business challenges. According to Andrew Zolli and Ann Marie Healy's book, Resilience- Why Things Bounce Back, organizations and people must position themselves "to better absorb disruption, operate under a wider variety of conditions, and shift more fluidly from one circumstance to the next". Resiliency is the key to delivering the desired result. The Jordan Cove LNG team will discuss how they have embraced the concept of resiliency from senior leadership to front line staff member as they overcome volatility related to FERC denial (Dec 2016), subsequent FERC re-submittal (Sept 2017) and recent acquisition by Pembina (October 2017).

All members of the workforce belong to generational cohorts, which are directly impacted by the events of their formative years. By reviewing the events that have shaped each generation, and delving into their stereotypical characteristics, we can provide suggestions for a harmonious work environment. We have used data from the Pew Research Center and XYZ University to draw conclusions and provide insight.
In this presentation, all generations currently in the workforce are reviewed. Millennials are targeted and broken into data-driven categories that provide solutions for each identified archetype.
