SLIDESHOW: Business Women First

By Pittsburgh Business Times

The role that women play in southwestern Pennsylvania's growing energy sector was the topic of Tuesday's Business Women First conference, hosted by the Pittsburgh Business Times at the Westin Convention Center Hotel in Pittsburgh.

The event featured a panel discussion on how women are powering the region's energy boom, and the opportunities that are being presented not just by the Marcellus Shale but also other energy industries including electricity, coal and wind power.

Appearing on the panel were Dawn Fuchs, president and CEO of Weavertown Environmental; Kristina Kovach, government relations specialist at Talisman Energy USA; Nicole R. Snyder Bagnell, partner at Reed Smith; and Emma Canter, director of human resources at Direct Energy Business. The panel was moderated by Jennifer Curry, managing editor of the Pittsburgh Business Times.

The luncheon keynote speaker was Marcia Simpson, vice president of engineering at EXCO Corp. in Dallas.

The sponsors were PNC Bank and Carlow University.
