Welcome to the North Texas Chapter of the Women’s Energy Network (WEN-NT). My name is Jennifer Willis and I am honored to serve as the Chapter President.
My passion is encouraging and uplifting others, and my involvement in this organization allows me to do just that! For over 13 years, WEN-NT has provided networking and educational opportunities for women in the energy industry to grow professionally and thrive. Our members work in nearly every aspect of the diverse energy industry. We hold various roles in Geoscience, Engineering, Land, Legal, Accounting, Financing, Human Resources, Management, Business Development, Marketing, and Environmental. Our chapter offers its members a way to get plugged in to the industry in the DFW area.
I’m looking forward to all the events the 2022 WEN-NT Board has planned. If you’re new to the group, the easiest way to meet us is to attend a monthly luncheon. We hold luncheons the first Thursday of the month at the Dallas Petroleum Club and the third Wednesday of the month at the Ft. Worth Petroleum Club. Each meeting has a speaker who presents on some facet or topic relevant to the Energy Industry.
You may also get involved in our chapter by joining the Mentoring program, attending a quarterly special event or happy hour, or joining one of our committees. You may also attend the Chapter’s signature annual event: The WEN-NT Leadership Conference, which will be held on Oct 20th. We also have an Executive Membership Program for executive leaders in energy to network and exchange ideas. More information for all of these membership benefits can be found here on our website homepage: womensenergy network.org/NorthTexas.
In addition to supporting our members, we are also very proud to support Women in the DFW Metroplex. At the end of 2020, WEN-NT established two charitable funds to expand and enhance the Chapter’s philanthropic efforts. In 2021, the chapter created the WEN-NT Charitable Funds Committee which, through the contributions of its Founding members and other donors, raised over $40,000 in its inaugural year. These funds support the newly created WEN-NT Scholarship Program for deserving female students pursuing a degree in energy. These funds also support other worthy organizations. One such organization is the Genesis Women’s Shelter.
Please join me this year in using Our Collective Energy to Improve Lives!
