I am so proud to have been asked to help support the UK Government 'Not Just For Boys Campaign'. This campaign is all about choice, inspiring women and dispelling the myth that some industries are for men-only. I was asked to feature in an article to show my support and offer an insight and view of what it is like exactly to be a female working offshore. The main reason I created this blog was to raise awareness of a women's place within the industry so it is fantastic to know that this is working.
Only 3.7% of the oil and gas workforce are women and recent evidence suggests this number is declining. I have been answering questions with regards to how I got into the industry, any restrictions I have encountered because i'm a female and my advice to women thinking about working offshore. This is a great campaign that needs support not only from members of the oil and gas community but other male dominated industries.
The article has received some great response and i have been sent some fantastic emails and messages expressing their support. It is brilliant to hear that the article is being received well and that people are out there supporting women offshore.
Here is a link to the first published article hope you enjoy!
