Call for diversity caps off “From the Wellhead to the Water” event

As the keynote speaker of the event, Sean Strawbridge mentioned the upcoming elections and the concern over the energy stock markets, but also acknowledged that now is the time to act.

“To improve the image of energy, we as an industry should improve on our messaging, including focusing on environmental and social management.” He later added, “We should also hire more women because diversity offers perspectives for success.”

After Strawbridge’s remarks, a panel weighed in and included David Blackmon, Editor, SHALE Magazine; Kris Jensen, VP Project Engineering, NuStar Energy; and Jeff Dorrow, VP Commercial NGL & Crude, EPIC Midstream. Kym Bolado, CEO, Shale Magazine, served as the moderator.

More than 75 people attended the event on February 27 at the Embassy Suites by Hilton San Antonio Landmark.
