As we celebrate International Women’s Day, it is essential to acknowledge the significant contributions that women have made to the oil and gas industry. One such woman is Linda Cook, the first female executive director of Royal Dutch Shell, commonly known as Shell, one of the world’s largest oil and gas operators. Cook’s achievements in the industry are a testament to the fact that women can excel in any field, and her dedication and professionalism inspire many women in the industry.
