President’s Message


Having been involved in the energy profession for 30+ years, I have experienced the transformation not only from an industry standpoint, but witnessed a new generation of professionals who are dedicated to changing how we think about the energy landscape. I joined WEN to make a difference. 

Through WEN, we have connected hundreds of women in energy through informal conversations, educational sessions and social activities. We have created a mentoring program through a partnership with Columbia University and are expanding women speakers through a joint initiative with S&P Platts, not to mention the multiple charities we’ve supported.  

But just like any start-up, we’ve also faced into some challenges…New York City is an expensive place for a non-profit. Corporate sponsorship is critical to making a difference. So I ask for your support in keeping the momentum going.
