Each June, the Energetic Women Conference welcomes energy professionals from across the country to a women-focused leadership conference offering career development and networking opportunities to those in operations, engineering and leadership.
This year, Detroit is hosting the annual event, during which attendees will participate in industry tours, educational sessions and activities to hone their leadership and interpersonal skills.
We’re proud to share DTE employees who are not only developing their own energy careers — they’re mentoring and inspiring other women to build their careers in the energy industry too.
Meet … Eden S., supervisor, Overhead Field Operations
“My father was a power plant operator at the St. Clair power plant for 23 years. Growing up in that environment inspired my career trajectory, which began at DTE as a student co-op. It was then I tapped into my passion for working hands-on in the field, troubleshooting and led to an engineer position within power generation. Today, I’m expanding my career through a leadership role as an Overhead Supervisor within DTE’s Distribution Operations and love that a career within DTE offers employees a variety of paths and unlimited room for growth.”
Meet … Kristin M., Revenue Management and Protection Field Operations manager
“While there’s no typical day in my role, being prepared and remaining flexible are top skills I employ to serve our customers and communities while ensuring the safety of our frontline employees. Being available for my employees and always looking for ways to improve our processes are two of the learnings I bring to annual conversations I have with my peers at the Energetic Women Conference.”
Meet … Madeline C., DTE student programs co-op
“I began my DTE career journey supporting the Chief Financial Offices recruiting efforts and have since moved to supporting recruitment for our Customer Service business unit. My favorite part about working for DTE is being able to connect with my peers both professionally and personally. I’ve made countless connections that have allowed me to better understand what I’m more interested in career wise as I continue on my professional journey.”
Meet … Omimah B., Distribution Operations engineer
“DTE helps me live out my passion for mentoring, by providing volunteer opportunities with our company’s student programs,” said Omimah. “Alongside my role, leading continuous improvement projects that are building the energy grid of the future, today – I’m supporting the next generation of energy professionals build and develop their careers.”
Meet … Teresa-Thao T., Capital Projects Implementation manager
“I began my DTE career 16 years ago in our company’s student co-op program, which provided me great hands-on experience to apply what I was learning in my electrical engineering studies. Today, I continue to enjoy the great work environment DTE fosters and applying the analytical, strategic and creative thinking needed to address the electrical infrastructure needs of our customers and communities.”
