It brings me great excitement and joy as I enter my first year as President of the Women’s Energy Network of Ohio. However, first I want to thank the Women’s Energy Network of Ohio for allowing me to serve as President and to be a part of an organization that not only educates, supports, and contributes to our members/community, but encourages friendships to be created within the industry. I am following the footsteps of some great leaders in this organization.
I'm proud of our Chapter's successes over the last year, considering the challenges that have come from having to adapt to a virtual environment due to the pandemic and being a young Chapter, starting in 2018. The WEN Ohio Chapter held strong, particularly in providing more opportunities for meaningful engagement of our members and sponsors, introducing innovative programming formats and topics, and providing professional development and outreach opportunities. In the year ahead, we will continue these initiatives, as well as adding additional programming to support educational, leadership and professional growth events. Whether it is in-person or virtual programming, events held in collaboration with other chapters and originations in Ohio area is a goal and will help us grow.
I am thankful for this opportunity. I look forward to working with each of you, helping to further develop this great organization, and meeting the goals set forth for 2022.
WEN Ohio President
