With the judges decisions handed down all there is left to do is chill the champagne for the inaugural 2014 Women in Industry Awards being held at Establishment in Sydney tonight.
The 2014 Women in Industry Awardsrecognises and rewards the achievements of women working in the industrial sectors, and aims to raise the profile of women within industry, as well as promote excellence.
Australian Mining has teamed up with Manufacturers’ Monthly and PACE to acknowledge women who have achieved success through their invaluable leadership, innovation and commitment to their industries
A total of nine awards will be up for grabs tonight, and each will celebrate the achievements of individuals and companies who are committed to raising the profile of women.
Editor-in-chief of Cirrus Media’s industrial publications, Cole Latimer, said the awards program was important in recognising the contributions being made to the changing face of industry.
“Though female participation has risen across all industrial sectors in Australia, companies are still focusing on more innovative attraction and retention strategies to foster this growing talent and support young women working in the sector,” he said.
“Women already working in the sector make up a big part of these support programs.
“They are paving the way for others and achieving great success, and we thinks this needs to be recognised in its own right."
You can follow the event live on Twitter using the hashtag #WII14.
Manufacturers’ Monthly would like to congratulate each and every finalist.
We look forward to seeing you tonight.
