The Awards cover four categories, to recognise companies and women at various stages of their careers:
  • Aspiring Star - for an ambitious young woman who has undertaken vacation or short term work in NSW mining
  • Rising Star - for those working in the industry for up to five years
  • Outstanding Woman - for any woman with at least five years’ experience in mining
  • Outstanding Initiative - open to companies working in or with the mining industry
The awards are a great way to highlight positive workplace initiatives, no matter how small, and promote the contributions of women in the industry.

Entries close on January 31, with finalists announced in February. Full details and applications are on the awards website.

We’ll be announcing the winners at the 2014 NSW Women in Mining Awards dinner in Sydney on Thursday, March 6. We’ve just released tickets, and as seats are limited, we encourage you to book now to avoid disappointment.

Aside from celebrating the great achievements of women and companies in our industry, we’ll also hear from 2012 Young Australian of the Year Marita Cheng. Marita will share her experiences as the founder of Robogals, an organisation that encourages school girls to get  involved in engineering.

We recognise and thank our event sponsors, BHP Billiton NSW Energy Coal, Northparkes Mines and Glencore, for showing leadership in promoting diversity initiatives and the role important women play in our industry.
