Jennifer Hohman, Seadrill Management Ltd, Chief Information Officer

Jennifer Hohman is a wife, mom and native Houstonian who is the Chief Information Officer of Seadrill, a large offshore drilling company. She has been known to  organize community events and charitable functions until one day when sex trafficking got too close to home. In her words, “It woke me the hell up to one of the most complex epidemics my city has ever seen!”. She is now trying to wake a sleeping giant, her community, and is a community leader and advocate for victims and survivors determined to create massive awareness regarding prevention, intervention, and recovery via community uprising and corporate involvement. In order to engage the corporate community, Jennifer and other business colleagues created the Oil and Gas Trafficking Advocacy (OGTAG) group to collaborate on ideas and initiatives to mobilize the energy industry to join the fight against sex trafficking.
