The Women In Industry Awards recognise and celebrate the exceptional women who have achieved success through their invaluable leadership, innovation and commitment to their sector.
New for 2017, the awards event will be joined by an all-day conference.
The conference will feature previous Award winners and industry leaders from across the mining, manufacturing, engineering and road transport industries. It will focus on the latest technologies and innovations, industry trends and will look at the different ways that success as a woman in industry can be defined.
Speakers at the conference include Jennifer Conley from the Australian Advanced Manufacturing Council, Lyn George from AUSTENG and Kirsty Liddicoat from BHP Billiton.
In focus on the day will be emerging industrial trends, success drivers and strategic change, and afternoon break-out sessions will give attendees the chance to join peers and get in-depth insight into industry-specific issues.
The conference will be a great learning, sharing and networking opportunity for attendees, whatever their gender!
The awards ceremony will celebrate outstanding individuals in 10 categories:
- Social Leader of the Year
- Rising Star of the Year
- Business Development Manager of the Year
- Industry Advocacy Award
- Safety Advocacy Award
- Mentor of the Year
- Excellence in Manufacturing

“The Women In Industry Awards are always such a fantastic opportunity to recognise those who have gone above and beyond in their industry,” said Events Manager, Lauren Winterbottom. “This year, the conference will provide an extra opportunity to appreciate the expertise, influence and results that women are contributing to Australia’s industrial scene.”
The conference will take place from 9.00am to 5.00pm, Thursday 22 June 2017, at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre.
The awards evening will then kick off at 7.00pm at Peninsula, Central Pier Shed 14, Docklands.
