BP (logo)  

BP

We deliver energy products and services around the world. From finding, developing and producing oil and gas resources, to refining, manufacturing and selling related products directly to customers and on the world’s markets, we keep the world moving.

Our challenge for the future is to balance environmental and climate change concerns with the fact that oil and gas will still play a big role. So, we are continually looking to develop innovative ways of lowering emissions, while meeting the world's growing energy needs.

It takes a diverse group of talented people to help us create real change. From engineers, automotive experts, geoscientists and chemists to accountants, analysts, technologists and traders. However, with women only accounting for 9% of the professional engineering workforce worldwide, there is still much to be done when it comes to diversifying the energy industry.

We are immensely proud to be a headline sponsor of The IET Young Woman Engineer of the Year Awards. The admirable efforts being made to increase inclusivity represents something that deserves the full support of the energy community. It’s through the impact of initiatives like these that more female talent can thrive, building a diverse future workforce capable of meeting the challenges of a changing world.
