2015 Women in Industry Awards: Last chance to nominate

Are there women in your business doing amazing work? Get your nominations in for the 2015 Women in Industry Awards.

The 2nd annual Women in Industry Awards recognises and rewards the achievements of women working within the mining, engineering, and manufacturing industries, and aims to raise the profile of women within industry, as well as promote and encourage excellence.

Australian Mining, PACE and Manufacturers’ Monthly are partnering to acknowledge the exceptional women who have achieved success through their invaluable leadership, innovation and commitment to their sector.

This is your opportunity to have Australia’s leading publications recognise the women who are driving change in your industry and – in doing so –breaking down barriers and creating new possibilities for the next generation.

These may be women you work with, women whose achievements are inspiring you from afar, or women who are providing you with invaluable guidance and support. Their achievements may not be creating headlines, but we believe their dedication and exceptionalism should be celebrated.

Last year’s awards night was a huge success, with over 150 people turning out to see women in industry celebrated.

The room was abuzz with excitement as a total of nine awards were handed out to very deserving recipients – and if this year’s response is anything to go by, the industry is once again looking forward to being part of this unique event.

Editor-in-chief of Cirrus Media’s industrial publications, Cole Latimer, said the awards program was important in recognising the contributions being made to the changing face of industry.

“Though female participation has risen across all industrial sectors in Australia, companies are still focusing on more innovative attraction and retention strategies to foster this growing talent and support young women working in the sector,” he said.

Any woman working in the industrial sector can enter the awards, with the event culminating with an awards dinner at the Ivy Ballroom in Sydney on Thursday the 25th of June.

  • BDM of the year
