New to the 2017 edition, the all-day conference will be held at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre from 9am to 5pm on Thursday June 22, and will be followed by the Awards night at Peninsula, Central Pier Shed 14 in Docklands.
The Awards recognise the achievements of women working within the mining, engineering, road transport and manufacturing industries, and aims to raise the profile of women within industry, as well as promote and encourage excellence.
Awards facilitator, Lauren Winterbottom, revealed the host of the 2017 edition of the Awards to be television personality, Gorgi Coghlan, best known as a presenter for The Project.
“It is an honour to be the host of the fourth annual Women in Industry Awards,” Coghlan said.
“I’m looking forward to celebrating the inspiring women who are leading the Australian manufacturing, mining, engineering and road transport sectors.”
“We’re proud to have Gorgi Coghlan to Emcee the night, which provides an opportunity for professionals to celebrate the women who have succeeded in contributing to the manufacturing, engineering, mining and road transport industries,” Winterbottom said.
“The Women in Industry Awards has been considered a night not just to celebrate the achievements of the Award finalists, but now it is reinforced by an all-day conference where we can really discuss ways to grow the numbers of women in the respective industries.”
According to Winterbottom, tickets to the Awards night and Conference are limited and selling fast. Tickets are available online.
