Exclusive Networking Opportunity

Going into its 5th year, Hart Energy’s Influential Women in Energy recognition program already has honored more than 100 female leaders across all sectors of the oil and gas business and in the legal and financial community that supports the industry.

Following a successful series of networking “power luncheons” since its debut in 2018, the program pivoted to a virtual event amid pandemic precautions in early 2021. Now, as vaccines offer safer conditions in which to gather, Hart Energy is working to bring the 2021 honorees together and create a sophisticated in-person networking opportunity for and with these remarkable women.

On Monday, November 29, at the Westin Houston (Memorial City) hotel, the “Class of ‘21” and a select crowd of industry insiders will gather to celebrate, renew acquaintance and expand each other’s professional networks. Hart Energy sincerely hopes this reception will set the stage for more meaningful interactions in the months and years ahead.

Register today to ensure your access to the event. We will look forward to seeing you November 29.

Earlier that day at the Westin, Hart Energy will host its second annual Energy ESG conference. Yet another “pivot to virtual” event during its successful 2020 premiere, this year’s conference will mark the first in-person staging for this high-level program. (Last year nearly 2,400 professionals registered for on-demand viewing of the online event.) While the in-person conference will be smaller, we expect the same sort of executive audience and promise to deliver comparable, high-quality content to support organizations’ ESG performance goals.

NOTE: Separate registrations are required for the Energy ESG Conference and the Influential Women in Energy reception.
