About Our Chapter

The Women’s Energy Network (WEN) Permian Basin was established in July 2015 and encompasses Midland, Odessa, and Andrews. The mission of the Women’s Energy Network Permian Basin is to attract more women into energy through outreach programs; to retain and develop women in energy by fostering relationships; and to develop leadership competencies and industry insight through strategic partnerships with companies, educational institutions, and other organizations.

WEN Permian Basin will provide networking and educational programming such as educational workshops on emerging energy trends, a STEM girls mentoring program including award a scholarship, and networking event. In 2019, WEN Permian Basin was proud to award $40,000 in scholarships to deserving students.
