PACE is proud to present the 2014 Women in Industry Awards

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

The 2014 Women in Industry Awards recognises 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 and encourage excellence.

PACE, Manufacturers’ Monthly and Australian Mining are partnering to acknowledge the exceptional women who have achieved success through their invaluable leadership, innovation and commitment to their sector.

The program aims to recognise women who are leading change in their chosen field and breaking down the barriers in what can often be male-dominated industries.

The awards seek to single out and reward women who have created innovations, driven productivity, spearheaded change, and provided social and economic benefits in their fields.

The only awards program of its kind to encompass manufacturing, mining 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.

And with so many thought-leaders together in one room on the night of the awards, it provides a forum for women to meet and exchange information, ideas and solutions to problems and offers individual an opportunity to expand personal and business networks, maintain awareness of industry developments, improve skills and knowledge, and make a contribution to other women in the industrial sectors.

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

“Though female participation has risen across all industries in Australia, companies continue to be innovative in their attraction and retention strategies in order to foster talent and support young women working in the sector.

“And women already working in the sector make up a big part of these support programs.

“They are paving the way and achieving great success and we thinks this needs to be recognised in its own right until the industry participation levels are of equal measure for both genders.”

Any women working in the industrial sector can enter the awards, with the even culminating with a cocktail event at the Ivy Ballroom in Sydney.
