Have you read the book, Breaking the GAS Ceiling?
Breaking the GAS Ceiling, Women in the Offshore Oil & Gas Industry is the result of one woman’s desire to record and preserve a missing piece of history of the offshore industry. In this book, which has been said to read like a collection of short stories, author Rebecca Ponton wrote “condensed biographies” of 25 women of various nationalities, ages, and positions within the industry, many of whom have achieved “firsts” in their fields.
Today on the Women Offshore Podcast, Rebecca reads the story of Arlete Jandira, a marine engineer from the Women Offshore Community. At the age of 25 years old, Arlete became Sonagal’s first female engineer. Get to know Arlete’s career and how she overcame challenges early on, and then come back next week for an exclusive interview with Rebecca to learn more about her experience writing Breaking the GAS Ceiling and what she is up to now!
