AABE California | College Scholarship Programs strives to meet both the challenges and the opportunities of raising the educational achievement for African Americans, Hispanics and Native Americans (underrepresented minorities) in the area of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) related disciplines. Our College Scholarship Programs serve to increase the share of minority STEM-based degree attainment in 4-year and 2-year programs of higher education. http://aabecalifornia.org/
IHS Global Inc. (IHS) serves international clients in nine major industries and provides industry data, technical documents, custom software applications, and consulting services. In November 2012, IHS prepared the “Employment Outlook for African American and Latinos in the Upstream Oil and Natural Gas Industry” report for the American Petroleum Institute (API). The report examined the outlook for African American and Hispanic workers in the upstream oil and natural gas industry.
The report projects 285,395 baseline growth, replacement requirement and pro-development policy jobs for African American and Hispanic workers over the period 2010-2030. The basis for the projections stem from a baseline forecast of employment growth and an alternative forecast based on a scenario for accelerated development outlined by Wood Mackenzie’s study for API in the fall of 2011.
The accelerated development outlined by Wood Mackenzie’s study includes the potential economic impacts of opening access to U.S. regions that are currently closed to oil and natural gas development (e.g. U.S. Atlantic and Pacific offshore, the Eastern Gulf of Mexico, and Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR). The scenario also assumes a return to historical levels of existing U.S. areas.
