Workforce Diversity & Development

IADC is committed to encouraging diversity both within the Association and in the industry workforce.  Our approach to diversity focuses on developing a workplace environment that maximizes the potential of all employees by valuing diversity interpersonally and institutionally.  IADC is focused on initiatives that encourage the recruitment and career management of anyone interested in undergoing the rigorous training that is required to produce the next generation of drilling industry leaders.

IADC is also committed to cultivating talent at the college level, and as such, introduced Student Chapters to encourage students interested in a future in the oil and gas industry to get involved with the Association before they graduate. As an association that represents the thought-leaders in the drilling contracting industry, IADC is in a position to provide students with mentorship from long-time industry experts anxious to help students achieve their career goals.
