President’s Message

Welcome to the Utah Chapter of the Women's Energy Network! Utah has a wide variety of energy companies and resources, including: wind, solar, minerals, oil and gas. Our chapter aims to provide networking and growth opportunities for women in the energy industry, and we look forward to working with you to advance our mission.

We've just finished our first year as a chapter, and have already had many successes, all because of the wonderful group of hardworking women who helped start the chapter and form the first board of directors. In 2019 we focused on networking and leadership development. Here are a few highlights:

  • Chapter Kickoff: over 70 attendees
  • Lunch & Learn at Dominion Energy
  • Uinta Basin Networking Social
  • Networking Workshop & Membership Drive
  • Girl Scouts of Utah STEAM Fair: ran a booth at the fair and taught girls how to make catapults; taught about the physics behind the catapult.

In 2020, we will continue our focus on networking and development, and hope to add a mentoring program for members and more educational events. As we continue to grow our chapter, we are looking for members to join committees, volunteer at events, and run for positions on the board of directors. We look forward to continuing our outreach and development of women in the energy industry, and hope you'll join us at our next event!
