It’s simple . . . demographic wants + industry needs = YWE

For young women, by young women, YWE was founded to champion the interests of young women working in energy.

YWE aims to address the recognized need to increase female presence, development and leadership in the energy industry. We are building an authentic community where members join because they are genuinely interested in connecting with and learning from peers.

We’ve gone straight to our members to understand their specific challenges, needs and preferences. Our approach is directly relevant and, as a result, more impactful.


  • Engage our members with the right people, in the right way, at the right time.
  • Inspire our members through innovative speaker series, panel discussions and activities.
  • Progress our members through career opportunities and challenges.

Who We Are

    • Female
    • Work in energy (directly for or with energy companies including service providers, legal counsel, communications, finance and technical professionals, etc.)

Based in Calgary YWE membership is open to members living/working both nationally and internationally.
