Finalists Announced 2024 Women in Resources and Manufacturing Tasmania Awards

Finalists across five categories have been announced in the 2024 Women in Resources and Manufacturing Tasmania Awards, recognising the contributions and achievements of women in the State’s resources, mining and manufacturing industries. 

The annual awards are coordinated by the Tasmanian Minerals, Manufacturing and Energy Council (TMEC) in conjunction with the AusIMM Women in Mining Network Tasmania (WIMnet) to create awareness of inspirational women working in resources and encourage other women to pursue careers in these Tasmanian industries. Ted Bradshaw, Head Judge and past Chair of AusIMM WIMnet noted that there was an extremely high quality of entries this year and that this has continually increased over the award’s 11 year history.

“Each year the independent judging panel face an increasingly difficult task,” Mr Bradshaw said. “Their individual life stories and career experiences are simply amazing”.

“Each of our finalists are an outstanding role model for the many women who work each day in the mining and manufacturing sectors in Tasmania, and for the many more who might be considering careers in our sectors. These awards enable us to showcase women’s capabilities and are a great way in which we can demonstrate what is possible to young women,” Mr Bradshaw said.

TMEC CEO, Mr Ray Mostogl, said, “TMEC and this sector are absolutely committed to changing diversity and gender equality. These awards showcase our industries’ ambassadors and promote the opportunity for more women to consider a career in Tasmania’s growing and increasingly diverse manufacturing, mining and resources sectors.” 

“The long-term future of the sectors we represent relies on attracting and retaining the best people to keep us at the forefront of innovation as we compete in global markets.”

“A workforce with people from diverse backgrounds, including a better gender balance, is critical to supplying the workforce of the future.” Mr Mostogl said.

Winners of the Tasmanian awards will be announced at a ceremony at the Tramsheds Function Centre Launceston on 21 June. Our state winners will progress to the national awards to be held in Canberra on 10 September 2024.
