The Women in Industry Awards has selected a 2021 Ambassador, who will encourage women in male-dominated industries to nominate for the awards.

Rachael Ashfield, Marketing Manager at ifm efector, has been progressing her career steadily – moving from Executive Assistant to Marketing Assistant, and now leading the department.

In 2020, Rachael was nominated by her colleagues for the Business Development Success of the Year category, and subsequently won.

“The nomination itself was extraordinary, and then to reach the list of finalists and subsequently win the award was a personal and career defining highlight,” she said.

“I was honoured that my colleagues felt so highly about my efforts.”

In her role as Ambassador, Rachael will be encouraging women from across the construction, manufacturing, mining, engineering, transport, and waste management sectors to nominate for the 2021 Women in Industry Awards.

“Women bring alternative viewpoints and experiences to a business which often fosters creativity and change. Yet the career pathway for women can be quite challenging, especially in an industry that is not highly represented by women,” Ashfield said.

“The Women in Industry Awards give you an opportunity to highlight key aspects and career defining moments of your many years of success and dedication.”
