Rising Stars

The World Refining Association firmly believes in supporting the refining community and its search and retention of talent. We do this through our “Rising Stars” sessions. Prior to a WRA event, Process Engineers are nominated from refineries in the region for their work in the sector. From a shortlist of five, one is voted the winner and crowned the ‘Rising Star’ at the event. This increases refiner engagement and also attracts up and coming engineers to participate- giving them a voice. The winning refineries are able to then promote their ‘Rising Star’ and support their growth as a manager of the future.
