Gulf Publishing Company’s tenth Women’s Global Leadership Conference in Energy and Technology (WGLC) takes place October 29-30 in Houston, Texas.

In this video WGLC founder and Gulf Publishing Company’s former Vice President of Events, Alexandra Pruner, talks about the conference's origin and purpose. Pruner is currently the Chief Financial Officer and Partner, Tudor Pickering, Holt & Company.

It’s an exciting time to be a woman in the oil and gas industry as new discoveries and technological innovations create global opportunities. We’d like to invite you to attend the 2013 WGLC conference October 29-30, 2013 and take part in this special event.

WGLC 2013 will begin with opening remarks from Marcela Donadio of Ernst & Young LLP on the morning of October 29 followed by a keynote presentation from leading economic historian, best-selling author, and award-winning journalist, Amity Shlaes. On day two of the conference, Jo Miller, Chief Executive Officer, Women's Leadership Coaching, Inc. will deliver the morning keynote presentation, "Become a Person of Influence," and after lunch, Jackie Joyner-Kersee*, Track and Field Record Holder and Sports Illustrated's "Greatest Female Athlete of the 20th Century," will speak about her personal experiences with goal setting and professional development.

This year's conference program will explore Changing the Global Dynamics—America's Renaissance with sessions focused on the abundance of energy in U.S. exports and the changing global landscape in oil and gas markets, shale and unconventional resources, and challenges specific to the professional and leadership development of women.

As one of the largest women’s events in the industry, and the only one that focuses on discussing key environmental, economic and professional development issues in oil and gas, this is the perfect forum to network with your peers and exchange valuable ideas and experiences. Targeted specifically to matters of female leadership, WGLC strives to provide meaningful discussion on all aspects of responsible stewardship ranging from energy security and geopolitics to personal career development.
