Women in Propane agrees to be official chapter of Women in LPG

July 16, 2018 By    

The Women in Propane Council (WIP) agreed to become an official national chapter of the Women in LPG (WINLPG), a global network managed by the World LPG Association (WLPGA).

The WINLPG supports and helps empower women in the industry by providing leadership, coaching, mentoring and role models to enable a change in organizational attitude to become more inclusive for all genders at all levels. As a national chapter of WINLPG, Women in Propane says it agrees to support WINLPG’s three objectives: support and retain women in the industry via a unique global network; promotion and advocacy via role models, case studies, international media and events; and educate and attract women to the industry.

The WIP business council is an existing network in the United States. As a WINLPG national chapter, WIP is welcomed and given full support by the global body, the association reports. The new interconnection will help create a wider outreach to members and potential members worldwide.

Other national chapters of WINLPG include India, Nigeria, and South Africa.

Both the WIP and WINLPG are focused on improving diversity in the propane workforce. The mutual agreement does not alter the existing management or governance of WIP, the organization explains.
