Last year NOV launched three employee networking groups, including Elevating Women Together (EWT).

"Our mission is to build an encouraging network to empower women through access to professional and personal development resources," said Erin Williams, Co-Chair of EWT. "Our goals are to attract and retain more women, establish and improve the methods of visibility and recognition of women’s achievements, enrich lives through education and active involvement in the community, and lead the energy industry in positive female influence."

Across NOV's global workforce, women account for 15% of all employees, 22% of salaried employees, 10% of the C-Suite, and 20% of the Board of Directors.
