2Hill Consulting Services Celebrates 16 Years The Ms Engineer Way!
Creator: Kim Davis
SUGARLAND, TX (April 2022) – A story of resilience, overcoming obstacles and an entrepreneur growing to new heights, Alana Hill of 2Hill Consulting Services is excited to announce 16 years in business, new training programs including one for project managers. Before establishing 2Hill Consulting Services, Alana enjoyed a colorful career with the international technology company Schlumberger advancing from a Field Engineer to a Program Manager. In her tenure with the oilfield services giant, she not only managed multiple technology implementations, she also learned to drive an 18-wheeler!
Hill is an international change leadership expert, author, and speaker. “I specialize in building a more resilient, inclusive culture so that everyone can belong, contribute and add value right away,” she says. Her own journey provides a great roadmap for success. Hill was the second black female Petroleum Engineer to graduate from Texas A&M. Now this “oily IT geek” has created a program, www.EngineeredForPurpose.com, based on her book What’s your Catalyst? The Power of Managed Change: How Purpose and Passion Can Drive Strategic Life Change.
In the diversity-challenged worlds of energy, tech and manufacturing, women are cracking glass ceilings and breaking the mold of people who lead. Hill is one of those women. According to Catalyst, women account for 22% employees in the oil and gas d that percentage decreases with seniority. Across the world, women account for 17% of senior level-executive roles and 1% of CEO’s. Women are especially scarce in technical and field roles which often lead to advancement where they only hold 15% of those roles.
Hill is excited about the firm’s future. “We expect to grow at a rate averaging 30% per year for the next 5 years by meeting the growing demands of the talent development industry.” With a focus on excellence, 2Hill Consulting Services, LLC continues to be strategic and adaptable, proving that agility is a business's greatest asset.

A Collective Breath:
Stories of Being Black in America and Visions of Change
Compiled by: Bridgett McGowen
Open. Sincere. Honest. Unfiltered.
In early June of 2020, many of us found ourselves unable to sleep ... unable to function normally ... unable to comprehend that once again, a black man found himself unable to breathe and ultimately met his demise at the hands of the police.
You may have also found yourself in a state of shock and wanting to do something. The contributors to A Collective Breath: Stories of Being Black in America and Visions of Change found themselves in similar positions.
A Collective Breath’s collaborators’ candid, personal thoughts and feelings reveal the many challenges that blacks face in America today—challenges they may not directly divulge to others but that are part of their realities, and they offer ideas for solutions and actions to pave the way to a more optimistic future.
Consisting of a wide variety of blacks who are well-educated; who are community leaders, entrepreneurs, business owners, and professionals; and who are involved with their families and religious organizations, the contributors tell of what it is like to be black in America.
In A Collective Breath, the contributors do not hold back.
They take a collective breath—the breaths that George Floyd, Manuel Ellis, Javier Ambler, Eric Garner, and so many others could not take—to document for the world how they feel in this moment; the lenses through which they, as blacks in America, view and live their lives; and what they believe needs to change today for a different tomorrow.
