Woodside has been recognised at the 22nd World Petroleum Council's Excellence Awards for its Science and Technology community education and outreach program.
Every three years at the World Petroleum Congress, the World Petroleum Council (WPC) recognises outstanding projects and innovations in the oil and gas sector.
Woodside's award submission referenced a number of long term community partnerships in which we have worked with our partners to continuously deliver real outcomes in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM).
Woodside Social Investment Manager, Jo Ferrie said: "Woodside has a history of collaboration with schools, universities, government and other stakeholders to support, educate and empower the community and students in STEM.
"Our multi-faceted approach supports long-term strategic gains while retaining the ability to respond to new and emergent forms of STEM education, ensuring our program remains contemporary and relevant".
Woodside's STEM in Schools Education Program, in conjunction with Earth Science Western Australia, teaches the importance of STEM-related subjects to primary and high school students across Western Australia.
The award also recognised that Woodside's support of STEM outreach is not just financial. The commitment and involvement of Woodside management and our employees in community partner programs was a contributing factor to our success.
Our CEO Peter Coleman accepted the award on behalf of the company at the conference in Istanbul this week.
