Summit stresses opportunities for women in the oil and gas industry

Posted: Updated:
CANFIELD, Ohio -

Ohio Congressman Bill Johnson wants women in the Valley to know careers in the oil and gas industry are not just for men.

The Women in Energy Summit was held Monday morning at the Mahoning County Career and Technical Center.

The summit featured women working in various energy related careers including manufacturing, trades, engineering, and at the executive level.

"What we need to do is make sure that they're introduced to all the different opportunities, and often times what gets overlooked, when you're talking about careers, is many of those in the trades," said Rhonda Reda, Oil and Gas Energy Education Program.

Lieutenant governor Mary Taylor gave the keynote address.
