Today’s guest is from a country that many people probably know little about. Uganda, situated on the African continent, was one of Africa’s first countries to have a female vice president, is one of only a few countries in the world which has a ministry dedicated solely to women’s issues, and as recently as 2006, found oil. Today’s guest, Benita Bageire, has tapped into the huge potential of this discovery. Despite her lack of formal education in relation to the oil and gas industry, and old-fashioned practices which present a major challenge to women looking to acquire commercial funding, Benita founded Albertine Oil and Gas Services in 2016 and received the Upstream Oil and Gas Women of the Year Award in 2019. In this episode, you’ll hear more about what makes Uganda such a wonderful place, what the country’s oil and gas industry currently looks like, and its big plans for the future!
