2022 Comcast Agent of Change - Rani Puranik

Rani lives by the philosophy of ‘earn to return’. As an Indian immigrant, she had few resources and career opportunities when she came to Houston, yet she found hope and motivation by giving back to others in her community. Rani earned her way to become the CEO of World Oilfield Machine and is now giving back to her community through The Energy Project-- a global service leadership internship for students at the Energy Institute High School (EIHS) in Houston’s Third Ward. The program focuses on inclusion in the energy field and allows students to problem-solve today’s local energy challenges through innovation.
