Australian Mining, PACE, Manufacturers’ Monthly, MHD Supply Chain Solutions, Prime Mover, Inside Construction, Waste Management Review, Rail Express, Roads & Infrastructure Australia, Oil & Gas Today, Quarry and Australian Bulk Handling Review are partnered to acknowledge the exceptional women who have achieved success through their invaluable leadership, innovation and commitment to their sector.
The Women in Industry Awards recognise outstanding women from across a range of industrials sectors, for example those who work in mining, transport, manufacturing, engineering, logistics, bulk handling, waste management, rail and construction and infrastructure – all sectors that are traditionally male-dominated.
This is your opportunity to 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. We believe their dedication and exceptionalism should be celebrated.
