Women in Industry celebrate excellence

This year's Women in Industry Awards offers an opportunity for industry leaders to exchange ideas.

This year’s Women in Industry Awards offers an opportunity for industry leaders to exchange ideas.

There are a multitude of stories of inspiring women who have achieved success through invaluable leadership, innovation and commitment to their sectors.

While their stories cannot be summed up in one night, this year’s Women in Industry awards aims to showcase the best and brightest across a range of industry segments. 

The Women in Industry awards recognise and reward the achievements of women working across the mining, engineering, manufacturing, road transport, logistics, infrastructure, rail, bulk handling and waste industries and aims to raise the profile of women within industry, as well as promote and encourage excellence. 

This year’s award offers an invaluable networking opportunity for industry leaders to exchange ideas and share their unique approaches to leadership.

Women in Industry Events Manager Lauren Winterbottom said the gala event has over the years inspired attendees to forge new relationships with colleagues.

She said there were also many unique lessons that can be shared by breaking down barriers between competing industries.

“Women in Industry not only shares the stories of exceptional women but is a great opportunity to identify some of the unique synergies across sectors such as manufacturing and waste management or logistics and road transport,” Ms Winterbottom said.

“As a gala event, it’s also an evening of fun and entertainment and an enjoyable dinner.”

Ms Winterbottom said she was impressed with the calibre of the women put forward for awards this year.

She added that the categories recognise achievements in a diverse range of areas, including in regional community development and those reaching new heights in their careers.

“From highlighting individuals working actively to improve safety for their industry to demonstrating a commitment to develop female talent, the awards demonstrate the hard work and success that is often quietly happening in
the background.”

The 2018 edition of the awards saw more than 200 participants come together in Sydney to celebrate the success of female leaders within
the industry.

Women in Industry will take place on Thursday, 6 June 2019 at The Park, Albert Park, Melbourne.
