BACKGROUND: Young Professionals in Energy (“YPE”) is the first and only interdisciplinary networking and volunteer organization for people in the global energy industry – a place where bankers can connect with engineers, accountants with geologists and so on. Our mission is to provide a forum for knowledge sharing and camaraderie among future leaders of the energy industry.
The first YPE Chapters were launched in Houston and New York in 2005 by Stephen Cravens and Michael Teplitsky as a way to bring professionals in the industry together to network and exchange ideas in a comfortable setting.
The growth of YPE from 2 to over 8,000 members since the launch of the initial chapters underlines the need that was already present in energy cities across the globe.
