Celebrating the achievements of women in industry

Women are consistently achieving greatness and excelling in their chosen fields within the mining, engineering, manufacturing and process control industries and we think their talent should be acknowledged. 

Manufacturers’ Monthly has teamed up with Australian Mining and PACE to acknowledge women who have achieved success through their invaluable leadership, innovation and commitment to their sector. 

The only awards program of its kind to encompass mining, manufacturing and engineering, it also encourages the industrial world to raise the profile of women working in the differing sectors by embracing diversity and flagging clear paths for the next generation to follow. 

Editor-in-chief of Cirrus Media’s industrial publications, Cole Latimer, said the program was important in recognising the contributions being made to the changing face of industry. 

To nominate, just head to and follow the prompts.
