2014 Women in Industry Awards: The Winners

Over 150 people turned out for the inaugural 2014 Women in Industry Awards on Wednesday night where ladies from across the mining, manufacturing and engineering sectors were rewarded and recognised.

Held at the Establishment in Sydney, the evening was kicked off by guest speaker Ruth Medd, executive chair of Women on Boards, who shared her three tips for success.

She said women looking to advance their careers needed to learn how to better self-promote their talent, make focused and strategic plans and build a supportive network base.

ABC commentator Bernie Hobbs then took the reigns as MC for the night, and had the crowd in stiches with her good-natured ribbing and witty one liners.

The room was abuzz with excitement as a total of nine awards were handed out to very deserving recipients.

Commenting on the success of the night, business development manager at Manufacturing Skills Australia, Marilyn McMahon, said the event was the most "genuine" awards program she had attended. 

“Tonight was very encouraging,” McMahon said.

“The hosting was amazing, people are very keen to chat and very friendly, and the crowd is made up of a broad spectrum of people from across the industry.”

Manufacturers’ Monthly would like to congratulate the winners of the 2014 Women in Industry Awards.
