A few years ago, the oil boom made Williston, North Dakota, an almost all-male town. Only one-fifth of workers in the oil and gas industry are female; only construction has a lower proportion of women. The World Petroleum Council, an international oil and gas group, teamed with the Boston Consulting Group to create a thorough and helpful guide to reducing the industry’s gender gap. getAbstract recommends this report especially to senior managers in the oil and gas industry, but everyone with an interest in diversity will find it useful.
In this summary, you will learn
- Why only 20% of workers in the oil and gas industry are female, and
- How the industry can improve its gender diversity.
