Women have come a long way in the last 100 years, transforming the workplace and the oilfield as they’ve fought their way into roles previously considered off-limits to them. As much as attitudes and expectations have changed, however, challenges remain as women continue to blaze new trails in the industry. These were the recurring themes at the Pioneering Women in Petroleum Geology Forum.

Explorer President’s Column

 

This year is a pivotal year for the AAPG, in order to make it more nimble and adaptable to a rapidly changing business and social environment. The ultimate goal is for the AAPG to continue to be the “go to” association for petroleum geoscience, regardless of market conditions and budgeting constraints.
