Sarah Withell - BHP
 
Sarah commenced her career in mining as an Environmental Scientist in the remote Gulf of Carpentaria. Since then has had a distinguished career, becoming BHP’s first female head of Health, Safety and Environment and first female member of the NSW Energy Coal Asset Leadership Team.
 
She was accountable for delivering the State and Federal approvals to enable Mt Arthur Coal Mine to produce 36 million tonnes per annum - at the time, the largest approved coal mine in Australia. Key to the success of this project was ensuring that community support was maintained.
 
Sarah has been a mentor in the WIMNet NSW Mentor Program since 2016 and is passionate about the wellbeing of the workforce.
