In the beginning

It all started at the 2018 edition of the landmark Energy event OTC, where Energy Professionals from Across the Globe Gathered in Houston, Texas for its 50th Anniversary Milestone celebration. Energy industry experts and leaders from across the world came together at the NRG Park in Houston, Texas from 30th April–3rd May 2018 to celebrate the 50th edition of the renowned Offshore Technology Conference (OTC).

Alongside that celebration that hosted over 61,300 attendees from more than 100 countries came the birth of WEOG, Women in Energy Oil and Gas.

Dr. Oladunni Owo,  the  FOUNDER of WEOG   riding on the back of the  OTC Golden Jubilee celebration CONVENED a meeting of Diasporans and African female Energy professionals after the OTC Women in Energy round table lunch and Networking event called the  WISE (Women in the Industry Sharing Experiences) event, a staple at OTC since 2012, offering an opportunity for women and men to share experiences and collaborate on topics such as improved industry diversity, mentorship,  communications in the workplace, career, and business growth for Women.
