We often hear about the so-called "great crew change" in the oil and gas industry in Houston, with experts retiring faster than new talent can be acquired and trained to take their place.

But another part of that shift is about bringing more women into what has longly been a male-dominated pipeline.

It's a subject Stephanie Hertzog understands firsthand. She's the CEO of Houston-based Sodexo Energy & Resources North America.

In the audio above, the Pasadena native tells Houston Matters host Craig Cohen how she got into the oil and gas industry, what it's like to be a woman in leadership in oil and gas, and about mentoring women in the field.
