The energy industry has taken many positive steps over the years to attract more women to consider career opportunities in this industry. The Power Play Awards are one way to recognise their achievements and encourage others who may be considering a future job role in this sector.

If you know of a woman, or man, who is worthy of an LNG Power Play award–make sure you nominate them today!

The second annual Power Play Awards recognise and celebrate the accomplishments of remarkable women and the men who uphold the importance of supporting and empowering them in the workplace. These individuals demonstrate how a mutually supportive environment can help support great business outcomes across all parts of the LNG value chain.

The key objectives behind these awards are to shine a light on the newcomers and smaller players in the LNG value chain—in particular, encouraging nominations from resource holders, buyers, partners and FSRU providers. We invite all players in the LNG business to submit nominations for these awards, which are open now.

Awards

The three categories for the 2020 Power Play Awards include:

· The Rising Star–presented to an outstanding female professional, age 35 or younger

This award celebrates one 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.

· The Vanguard–given to a male or female professional who displays outstanding leadership

This award honours a woman or man who, through their words, actions and positive energy, inspires those who work with and around them. This individual has a collaborative leadership style that builds bridges and finds solutions. They carry a sense of purpose in all that they do, whilst maintaining a commitment to ethical work practices with the aim of being a responsible global citizen.

· The Rainmaker–awarded to a female professional who has delivered exceptional value and business results

This award honours a woman who has delivered outstanding business results, showcasing the value women bring to the LNG value chain. Colleagues might note her unrelenting positive energy or unique ability to advance a business goal, but she likely describes herself as someone who thrives on success. Qualifying events may include, for example, the close of large deal, launch into a new country, a new installation, a cost-saving initiative or an innovative commercial deal.

Finalists will be named and notified in late July and winners will be announced in September 2020.
