Research has shown that gender diversity helps business perform better, indicates that self interest and common interest can come together which women in oil and gas need to leverage on. Governments are also aware that the inclusion of women drives development, the national economy and that development plans require rapidly moving towards gender equality.

Historically, oil and gas is known to be a male dominated industry, however, this has been changing due to more women contributing to the growth of the industry. The industry welcomes and recognizes the benefits of a diverse workforce as they can draw on more ideas, innovation and contributions. Globally, the job market has become competitive, this competition has challenged the industry to open its doors to women in its effort to access the best talent. The participation of women in the industry has changed and continues to change.

The oil and gas industry has evolved over time to an almost level playing field for both male and female employees. However, there are certain challenges women must be prepared to face in their careers when adapting to a male- dominated industry. In order to be able to address these challenges of women’s participation and attract female talents in the industry, necessary tools need to be put in place to nurture and build these women.
