Young Professionals Committee

The WPC Young Professionals Committee was set up in 2006 in response to the serious shortage of young talented employees to replace the ranks of experienced professionals about to leave the industry. The committee is intended to promote a realistic image of the petroleum industry amongst the youth together with its challenges and opportunities. It has also created a collaborative and global forum for young people to be heard and new ideas to be championed.

In order to better engage with the target audience of young professionals and students the WPC Youth Committee was re-named WPC Young Professionals in 2015.   

Encouraging unconventional thinking

“It is important that young people are at the forefront of resolving this issue as they are the ones who will inherit this industry and should be involved in crafting its future”  said the WPC President.

The main focus areas of the WPC Young Professionals Committee include the creation of a strong network, the set-up of an effective communication plan, the definition of a sustainable strategy for the young professionals committee and a strong presence at major activities of the WPC and in other areas of the industry.
