President’s Message


As the  Women's Energy Network (WEN) Boston chapter enters its fourth year, I am proud and honored to serve as your President, and I look forward to working with you as we enter 2021. 

WEN Boston has a robust calendar planned for 2021, continuing to provide a platform for engagement and education within our three pillars: Expertise, Career Development and Community. We plan to engage more of you to participate in our programming as we work to refine our virtual engagement. Our leadership team is committed to cultivating inclusivity, personal connections and career development opportunities across the WEN community. 

2020 brought many unique challenges to our chapter. Our board worked collaboratively to move WEN Boston's events, collaboration and communication to virtual environments. We reached a broader audience as women joined our events from across the country and look forward to continuing to reach a more diverse audience in the future. We plan to continue to solicit feedback from our membership and sponsors to meet your needs as 2021 progresses. 

Thank you to our WEN members and sponsors for your ongoing support and engagement of WEN Boston's mission. We are passionate about WEN's mission to empower and educate women in the energy industry. We welcome new members passionate about energy and climate change and empowering women to succeed in leadership roles. Please reach out to me to learn more about joining our board, a committee or to become more involved and make 2021 a great success.
