The inaugural Thiess Women in Resources National Awards (WIRNA) recognise and celebrate the contributions and achievements of women in Australia's resources sector.
Resources sector bodies throughout Australia have been promoting the value increasing the proportion of women at all levels within the resources sector and these awards form part of that aim.
Winners of state-based awards and nominees from states yet to introduce awards are finalists in this event.
It forms part of strategies to ensure the sector has the skilled employees it needs and to enhance the industry’s performance through a more inclusive and gender balanced workforce.
These awards are another valuable tool to create nation-wide awareness of women in the industry, and encourage other women to consider it as a career path.
We look forward to seeing you at this inaugural event in Brisbane.
The event is being run in tandem with the annual Inspire!Convention, a professional development day in Brisbane for women in the resources sector.
Keynote speaker for Inspire! is Laura Tyler Asset President Cannington at BHP Billiton Minerals.
