2018 NSW Women in Mining Awards - Winners announced


The winners of the NSW Mining Women in Mining Awards have been announced today, recognising the increasing contribution women make to our world class mining industry and mining supply chain in NSW.


Minister for Mental Health, Minister for Women, and Minister for Ageing Tanya Davies MP presented the Awards at a special event at McCullough Robertson Lawyers in Sydney.

 

“Women make significant contributions to a range of industries across NSW every day and mining is no exception. These awards are an excellent celebration of the achievements and opportunities for women pursuing a career in mining,” Minister Davies said.


“Our NSW Women in Mining Awards acknowledge highly skilled women making an important contribution to a successful mining industry here in NSW,” NSW Minerals Council CEO Stephen Galilee said today.


“Our finalists are also making very important contributions to the NSW economy and to local mining communities right across the state,” Mr Galilee said.
