President’s Message


Welcome to the online home for the Women’s Energy Network of the Permian Basin! Thank you for visiting and seeing what we have to offer. 

WEN Permian is a relatively new chapter, formed through the hard work of local CPA Meredith Morgan Tipton in 2015. We joined a sisterhood that includes strong Houston, Chicago, and North Texas chapters, thrilled to add the Permian Basin to represent this fantastic organization started by Karyl McCurdy Lawson in 1994  

Our goal as an organization is to help provide a strong foundation for women in industry—from networking to mentorship programs to informative and fun luncheon and evening events, we support women’s connections and continued success in the communities we serve. No matter your particular discipline, you will find engaging, professional materials and timely topics in our offerings. 

Your interest and participation is very important to WEN: your excitement for our mission, and the support from our member companies, helps us to establish quality programs, and to continue to provide opportunities for women to meet, network, and learn from other women active in industry. Strong networks and relationships are the basis for healthy, fulfilling careers.  

Thank you for your interest in and support for WEN—please have a look around the site, check out the resources available to you as a member, and sign up for a luncheon or a volunteer opportunity…we look forward to meeting and working with you to strengthen women’s connections in the Permian!
