Inaugural GRIT Awards

When Experience Energy launched the inaugural GRIT Awards earlier this year, the response was overwhelming. More than 200 applications poured in from North America, the United Kingdom, Europe, Africa, Asia, Russia and the Middle East. Over 400 people attended our celebration live in Houston, and 74,000 tuned in online. The industry was hungry for an opportunity to celebrate its difference makers — the women who lead and the men who champion their progress in energy. View the list of GRIT winners here.

What is a GRIT Award?

A GRIT award is for the unsung leader who is down in the trenches getting the job done regardless of what recognition may come their way. 

The furthest thing from a ceremonial award, the GRIT awards recognize leaders who boldly step up to the occasion, whatever it may be. It’s for women that lead, but it’s also for men who recognize the value of women and are advocates for their progress in energy. NOMINATE NOW

What is the selection method?

Winners will be chosen by a panel of judges. Nominees will be evaluated based on professional accomplishments, personal philanthropic efforts and other qualities you define in the nomination.

All honorees and finalists will be recognized at the GRIT Awards on October 3, 2018 and online through social media. 

{Ok, I've thought of someone to nominate}

Experience Energy is a talent platform to bring candidates and companies (of all sizes and needs) together to get at the gender diversity gap. Next to water and food, energy is a vital part of human life and powers our world. Our aim is to fuel our planet with diverse teams of people who will propel us into the next era of energy. Find your next career or post your career openings today!
