2024 Women in Resources and Manufacturing Awards - Nominations are open now! Close April 30.


Women in Resources and Manufacturing Awards 2024

AWARDS EVENT : Friday 21 June Tramsheds Launceston

Self-nominate or nominate a colleague.

The Tasmanian Minerals, Manufacturing and Energy Council (TMEC) are proud to be partnering with AusIMM Women in Mining Network Tasmania (WIMnet) for the tenth year in hosting the Women in Resources and Manufacturing Tasmania Awards 2024.

The Women in Resources and Manufacturing Tasmania Awards recognise and celebrate the achievements of women and inclusion and diversity champions across Tasmania’s resources and manufacturing sectors. 

The Awards are an essential part of changing the paradigm many in the community hold regarding the opportunities for women to flourish in the industry sectors represented by TMEC. The Awards provide the chance to hear the voices of our female employees who are vital contributors to the industry and, at the same time, encourage other women to follow in their footsteps. Tasmanian award winners proceed to national events in resources and manufacturing later in the year. Tasmanians have taken out national awards on several occasions, proving Tasmania punches above its weight yet again.

Now in the tenth year, the awards demonstrate the diverse careers available to women in the sector and the industry’s commitment to attract, train, encourage and promote women.
