In 2019, McKinsey identified that companies with a significant proportion of female leaders consistently outperform their peers. So why is it that industries such as Oil & Gas still struggle to attract, retain, and promote diverse talent?
As an industry, there are fewer women working in Oil & Gas than almost any other industry according to research Catalyst. This is further compounded the higher up the executive ladder you climb, with just 1% of CEOs in the sector being female.
This is not a new challenge. The Oil & Gas sector has consistently suffered in terms of attracting diverse talent, resulting in a lacklustre pipeline which lacks diverse candidates in the traditional technical positions which so often facilitate career advancement in such organisations.
