Women in Industry Awards returning in 2024

WII Awards 2024

After record attendance and selling out for the first time in its history, Prime Creative Media’s Women in Industry Awards will return and be held in Sydney in June 2024.

In 2023, the Women in Industry Awards saw an outpouring of support and enthusiasm, marking its history with a first-time sold-out gala dinner. As the curtains rise for the 2024 event, expectations are high. A previous 55per cent boost in attendance, a staggering 160 nominations across 10 categories, and promotional support from 32 media mastheads underline its growing prestige.

Annually, the event offers an ode to the women redefining norms in mining, logistics, engineering, construction, and beyond. They are the unsung heroines breaking barriers, inspiring successors, and, as COG Advertising General Manager, Sarah Doyle puts it, “changing the narrative and reclaiming terms traditionally associated with a male-dominated work profession.”

The 2024 awards are also attracting robust industry support. Atlas Copco, SEW-DRIVE, Fulton Hogan, Paccar, Komatsu, and COG Advertising have already come on board as proud sponsors. Each sponsor echoes a commitment to the award’s ethos.

Graeme Johnson, Fulton Hogan Australia’s CEO, highlighted their enduring commitment, saying, “Fulton Hogan recognises that diversity is not only essential for us to change, adapt and grow, but it’s also good for business, leading to happier workplaces and better retention of our people.”

PACCAR’s Michael Long affirms their legacy of backing female talent: “Being part of the awards helps us further our goal of celebrating and championing inclusion and diversity in the workplace.” Similarly, Laura Arias of SEW-DRIVE stated, “Knowing how vital gender diversity is in our manufacturing industry drives us to work together to recognise women’s work and support them in fulfilling their goals.”

The awards, according to Fiona Halliday from Atlas Copco, serve as an “opportunity to recognise the contribution of women in industry and their amazing examples for the next generations.” Christine Morris of Komatsu echoed this sentiment, underscoring their “commitment to fostering an environment where women’s contributions are not only acknowledged but also celebrated.”

For those wanting to put forward exceptional women who have made significant strides in their fields, nominations are open on
