This half-day summit connects women-owned businesses with corporations in the oil, gas, and energy sectors. It features networking, moderated panel discussions, a luncheon, and exhibition highlighting corporate sponsors. The two moderated panel discussions address how diverse suppliers can best prepare for the future and are on cyber security and supply chain disruption - two topics corporations are requiring supplier capability in or seeing as trends in how suppliers differentiate themselves. The exhibition allows diverse suppliers to meet with buying entities at CenterPoint Energy, Chevron, ConocoPhillips, Oncor, and Vistra. Additionally, subcontractors of these entities will be present to discuss buying opportunities.
