The Rising Star Award celebrates a woman, 35 or younger, who is excelling early in her LNG career. She shows tenacity, passion and positive energy through her already noteworthy contributions in the LNG sector. Known by peers and mentors as part of the next generation of LNG leadership, she’s someone to watch.
History of the awards
The Power Play initiative was developed by leading women from ExxonMobil to help bring together women in the LNG industry to network and do business.
What began as a 'pilot' one-off event at LNG18 in Perth in 2016, quickly became a successful series of events taking place all over the world. The Power Play has succeeded in bringing many women together to collaborate and innovate across the complex system of the LNG Value Chain whilst shining a light on how they can make a difference in this business.
This year, the Power Play Awards will mark ExxonMobil LNG’s fourth year supporting inclusion and diversity by connecting and celebrating women and men across the LNG industry. We are looking forward to celebrating the remarkable finalists and winners at Gastech in Milan this September.
In 2021 Power Play and Exxonmobil LNG won a Diversity & Inclusion in energy award at Gastech Dubai. We hope that 2022 is Power Play’s best year yet!
