Education Outreach Initiative

WIOG is committed to educating high school and university students about the oil and gas industry and encouraging young women to consider future career possibilities within the oil and gas sector.

The latest report from WGEA demonstrates that only 24% of employees in Australia’s oil and gas industry are female.

University Students

WIOG works with university students to give them an insight into what it is like to work in the industry, the diversity of career opportunities within the sector (from engineering and science to commerce and law), and the high demand for more females.

We have Student Chapters at the University of Western Australia and Curtin University, which run tailor made events for students.

School Students

WIOG focuses on educating high school students to increase awareness of the industry and to encourage those who have chosen to select STEM subjects to consider a university pathway towards the oil and gas sector.

Industry Partnerships

Over the past four years, WIOG has partnered with Chevron to educate hundreds of students in Western Australia about the oil and gas industry and the vocational opportunities within the sector.
