Women are consistently achieving greatness in their chosen fields within the mining, engineering and manufacturing industries and we think their talent should be acknowledged.
The first ever Women in Industry Awards were a huge success and the program is back bigger and better in 2015.
The Women in Industry Awards recognises and rewards the achievements of women working in the industrial sectors, and aims to raise the profile of women within industry, as well as promote and encourage excellence.
Australian Mining has teamed up with Manufacturers’ Monthly and PACE to acknowledge women who have achieved success through their invaluable leadership, innovation and commitment to their sector.
The program aims to recognise women who are leading change in their chosen field and breaking down the barriers in what can often be male-dominated industries.
The only awards program of its kind to encompass mining, manufacturing and engineering, it also encourages the industrial world to raise the profile of women working in the differing sectors by embracing diversity and flagging clear paths for the next generation to follow.
And with so many thought-leaders together in one room on the night of the awards, it provides a forum for women to meet and exchange information, ideas and solutions to problems and offers individuals an opportunity to expand personal and business networks, maintain awareness of industry developments and make a contribution to other women in the industrial sectors.
Any women working in the industrial sector can enter the awards, with the event culminating with a cocktail event at the Ivy Ballroom in Sydney on Thursday the 25th of June.
