NSW Women in Mining Network
The NSW mining industry is world class and we’re proud of the things we’re achieving like helping to build stronger communities, innovative technology, world-leading safety and new practices to reduce our impact on the environment.
One issue we want to tackle is the shortage of women employed in non-traditional roles such as engineers, geologists, surveyors and trades, to show that mining is not just welcoming to women, but needs their skills. In 2012, we established the NSW Women in Mining Network to address this shortage.
The network is coordinated by the NSW Minerals Council and aims to:
Develop a sustainable network of women in the NSW mining industry
Address the significant shortage of women employed in non-traditional roles in the mining industry and other issues impacting their recruitment and retention
Provide guidance and inspiration to women in mining or women considering a career in mining
In addition to networking events, we also host the annual NSW Women in Mining Awards in March to mark International Women’s Day and to acknowledge the achievements of women in mining, including groundbreaking efforts by individuals and companies to recruit and retain women.
The network is open to all women working in or with the NSW minerals industry; we particularly encourage those working in non-traditional roles to join. There are similar groups for women in Western Australia
