About This Event:

Every university student wants to know: “What do I need to do to succeed in my career?”

The formula for personal and professional success is not complicated, but it is not easy, built on the fundamentals of Competence, Leadership, Collaboration, and Grit. The university curriculum focuses mainly on technical competence - mastery of the other three are left entirely up to you. They are the un-graded, but vitally important, electives in your university career.

This talk focuses on the critical element of Leadership along with strategies that young professionals can adapt to incorporate leadership development into their professional lives. Greg will share insights and experiences from his own career along with useful references from others that can be read or watched later.

Location: Virtual Event

About This Event:

Climathon Houston 2020: Ideate, Design, and Develop Solutions for #SDG13: Climate Action! The impacts of climate change are all around us, coming even harder and faster than the models predicted. When global climate politics is stifling, it’s your turn to move. Climathon communities collaborate to raise climate awareness, disrupt the status-quo, and rethink the cities we live in and the future we want as citizens. On Earth Day this year, the City of Houston published its first Climate Action Plan. This year’s Climathon will look to realize some of the goals of the plan through design sprints led by local subject matter experts in the areas of Transportation, Energy Innovation, Building Optimization, and Materials Management.

Join us in addressing these issues and participate in the biggest climate hackathon in the world. Whether you’re a concerned citizen, active advocate, designer, developer, engineer, energy professional, policy maker, student or startup, you can help innovative and local solutions for the global climate emergency. Bring an existing idea or get ready to meet and ideate with people like you who are ready to #TakeAction for our climate. The pandemic will not stop us from saving our people and planet! You will be able to experience Climathon globally and fully virtual this year, including live streams of all key sessions, workshop webinars, Zoom meetings with experts and coaches and more.

NOV 17 Carbon Mitigation Virtual Workshop

Event Details:

Date: November 17, 2020
Time: 8:00am - 1:00pm
Location: Virtual Workshop

About This Event:

Energy professionals – current and future – have to gain deeper insights into operational data for making tougher decisions. UH Energy’s new Upstream Energy Data Analytics Program answers this need for the upstream oil and gas industry. Designed and presented by leaders from industry and accomplished faculty from the University of Houston, the program provides a structured series of micro-credentials or “badges” that will provide the necessary data sciences skillset to facilitate developing solutions to current and emerging challenges using advanced data-based decision making. Each badge is a 15-hour module, delivered over a 3-week period, and the badges are stackable. The first three badges, which together form the Bronze Belt in Upstream Energy Data Analytics, are available online from UH Energy.

This interactive virtual workshop hosted by the Technology Collaboration Center in partnership with the Gulf Coast Carbon Collaborative will create adequate opportunities to feature and discuss novel and “unusual” solutions. Participants will be encouraged to participate in breakout sessions for different mitigation approaches.

The workshop will be organized around 4 main carbon mitigation approaches. Handling your own CO2 molecules [Direct] or any CO2 molecules [Indirect]. Avoiding CO2 emissions [Avoid] or capturing and storing CO2 [Store]:

  • Direct-Avoid [e.g.: energy efficiency, switch to renewable power]
  • Indirect-Avoid [e.g.: offset credits for forest conservation, renewable power credits]
  • Direct- Store [e.g.: Carbon capture & sequestration (CCS)]
  • Indirect -Store [e.g.: nature-based solutions such as forestry and soil carbon storage]

Experts will provide short pitches on (“unusual”) technologies in each mitigation approach and create adequate opportunities to feature and discuss novel and “unusual” solutions. Participants will be encouraged to participate in breakout sessions for different mitigation approaches.
