I’m writing this sitting on a flight to Saudi Arabia after more than two years of no business travel thanks to Covid-19.
April 7th marks the World Health Organisation’s World Health Day, where this year’s focus is “Our planet, Our health”. It states that “global attention on urgent actions (are) needed to keep humans and the planet health and foster a movement to create societies focused on wellbeing”.
Diversity and inclusion (D&I) has been on the agenda for many years now with legal obligations to protect individuals with certain characteristics since the 1960s.
I remember at school, saying to my friends that once I finished university, I wasn’t planning on studying again – how wrong I was! Fast forward almost a decade later and I’ve completed two degrees, night classes in Chinese and Russian and taken several industry courses.

If you work in the oil industry this feels like the mandatory, apologetic disclaimer required before being allowed to weigh-in on the energy transition nowadays.

The journey towards a career in oil and gas engineering has many twists and turns. For three women at Tendeka, a global specialist in advanced completions, production solutions and sand management, it was never a fixed destination they’d have mapped out as schoolgirls.

Wow, what a 12 months that was. The last article I wrote for Energy Voice was in June and looking back now, it shows how little was understood about the impact Covid-19 would have on our lives. I suggested in that article that we were emerging from the crisis then. How wrong could I be?
