2020 ERG & Affinity Group Summit Recap

Pink Petro launched in 2015 conceived with the goal to identify energy networks and workforce initiatives to accelerate the progression of diversity and inclusion in energy. Alone we can go fast but together we can go further. In 2016, we launched the Global Community Council for early companies that invested in membership.

By 2019, that membership grew to over 30 companies including oil and gas, utilities and alternatives. In the fall, the Energy Workforce of the Future summit brought together energy executives, influencers and other thought leaders to discuss how the energy sector can become a leader in attracting and retaining the next generation workforce. The participants included 78 companies and 10 leading affinity groups in energy. 

At the first summit we determined we would set the vision and tackle four key focus areas: the sharing of best practices, industry attractiveness, inclusive culture, and measuring D&I performance. In March 2020, just before the COVID-19 pandemic, we held our first summit on ERG and affinity network best practices. This report includes insights and recommendations on the way forward. 

With the recent oil price plunge and the the pandemic, professional development is more important than ever. Despite this environment, our Global Community Council, members and partners benefit by leveraging our collective resources to continue building talent and culture for the future. 

We respectfully submit the learnings and best practices report, slides and web-event replay below.
