Women in the energy field
BATON ROUGE- The oil, gas, and energy fields are sometimes thought of as a "boy's club," but there are many women in the industry.
Katie Menhert is one of those women. She is the founder of Pinkpetro.com. This morning she stopped by 2une In to tell News 2's Kylie Dixon more about the website.
Menhert came up with the concept for a social media website that connects women in the energy field. The site has reached eleven countries in its four weeks of operation.
This week Menhert will be speaking at the Women's Energy Conference in New Orleans. Hundreds of women and men in the field will meet up in the city to talk about the current state of the industry and how it can move forward.
