Waltham, Mass. and Denver, Colo., June 13, 2016 /3BL Media/ - On November 2 and 3, 2016, some of the most prominent women leaders in the US energy industry will gather in Boston for EUCI’s Leadership Conference for Women in Energy, hosted by National Grid.

This event is designed to help professional women advance their careers in a historically male-dominated industry by providing insight into key energy industry challenges and skills for personal and professional development.  Some of the nation’s most successful women leaders in energy will share their industry knowledge, strategies and experiences on how to accelerate positive organizational and industry change and personal growth.  The program includes keynote addresses, panel sessions, interactive group discussions and many networking opportunities. 

“The list of accomplished women in energy is growing steadily,” said Marcy Reed, president of National Grid in Massachusetts.  “That’s why we are so pleased to host this conference; it’s an important opportunity to learn from one another and celebrate each other’s success.”

EUCI’s President Raj Mrig added, “This conference is not just about creating more leadership roles for women. The energy industry is facing complex challenges, and to navigate them we have to tap all talents and expertise. If we are not including women in this conversation, we are missing crucial perspectives, voices, and ideas that are critical to the future of the industry.”

Confirmed speakers include:

  • Marcy Reed, President, National Grid Massachusetts
  • Carter Reid, Senior Vice President, Chief Administrative & Compliance Officer and Corporate  
  • Secretary, Dominion Resources
  • Tracey LeBeau, Senior Vice President, WAPA, Department of Energy
  • Kristin Barbato, Vice President- Customer Energy Solutions, New York Power Authority

  • Laurie Dunham, Vice President, Duke American Transmission Company (DATC)

The inaugural Leadership Conference for Women in Energy in Indiana in June 2015 drew more than 190 female energy executives.  The second event, held in California in December 2015, was attended by more than 250 women.  The most recent event, hosted by CPS Energy in Texas in June 2016, had over 200 in attendance.  EUCI expects a high turnout for the November event in Boston, as it's the first to be held in the Northeastern US.
