2014 Women in Industry Award Winners: VIDEOS

Over 150 people turned out for the inaugural 2014 Women in Industry Awards dinner in June, where ladies from  the mining, manufacturing and engineering sectors were rewarded and recognised for their career achievements.

The program aimed to recognise women who are leading change in their chosen field and breaking down barriers in what can often be male-dominated industries.

From space engineering experts, to invaluable mentors, and women in charge of multi-billion dollar mines, the awards night singled out women who have created innovations, driven productivity, spearheaded change, and provided social and economic benefits through their fields.

Here are the winner’s interviews from the night.
