Join us as we provide women and students with information about careers in IT, petrochemical, construction trades, avionics, and biotech industries.

Keynote Speaker

Maci Chambers is a Process Slider at the ExxonMobil Baytown Refinery. She graduated from Crosby High School and received her Bachelors in Corporate Communication and Minor in Business from the University of Houston.

Maci joined ExxonMobil January 18th, 2016. She hired in as a Process Technician and has been in several roles from Safety Teams, Turnaround Planning and most recently Console and Shift Team Leader.

I’ve always liked a challenge – it just makes everything that much more rewarding. I knew nothing about Process Operations, I still have a lot to learn, but I’m proud of how far I’ve come. I have two little girls who look up to me. I teach them that they can shine bright in ANY room they make it to. We are all 1 of 1, regardless of where you are, that’s your super power – being YOU.”
