Short Bio

The modern architect of culture change in energy, Katie Mehnert is the Founder and CEO of Pink Petro™, the global community and career resource aimed at disrupting the gender gap in energy. And in 2017, she launched Experience Energy the only global careers platform aimed at delivering the energy transition.


Katie has held global leadership roles with BP and Shell in safety and environment during periods of financial crisis, spills, divestment and globalization. Katie’s early career included consulting with Duke Energy, Entergy and Enron. Her corporate path drove her to entrepreneurship to help energy companies prepare for the looming talent shortage and workforce diversity needs to address energy poverty and climate change.


In 2019, she testified before Congress on the clean energy workforce of the future. She’s published in Scientific American, Forbes, The Hill, CNBC, CNN, and other international outlets. She is also the founder of Lean In Energy, a global nonprofit solely devoted to mentoring in the energy sector.


Katie is a four-time World Major marathoner having completed London, Chicago, New York and Berlin. Her husband is an associate general counsel with Baker Hughes. They live with their 8-year-old daughter in Houston’s Energy Corridor. Her recent book Grow with the Flow released in April 2020.
