PACE partners with Women in Industry Awards

The 4th annual Women in Industry Awards have been launched for another year, focusing on women excelling across a number of fields and PACE has partnered with the awards to acknowledge the exceptional women who have achieved success through their invaluable leadership, innovation and commitment to their sector.

This year, the awards will be held in conjunction with the Women in Industry Conference with the program available at

 Speakers at the conference will include Jennifer Conley from the Australian Advanced Manufacturing Council, Lyn George from AUSTENG and Kirsty Liddicoat from BHP Billiton.

In focus on the day will be emerging industrial trends, success drivers and strategic change, and afternoon break-out sessions will give attendees the chance to join peers and get in-depth insight into industry-specific issues.

The conference will be a great learning, sharing and networking opportunity for attendees, whatever their gender.

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.

The aim of the 2017 Women in Industry Awards is to recognise and reward 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.

The only awards program of its kind to encompass mining, manufacturing and engineering, the Women in Industry awards also seek to single out and reward women who have created innovations, driven productivity, spearheaded change, and provided social and economic benefits through their fields.

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 individuals an opportunity to expand personal and business networks, maintain awareness of industry developments and make a contribution to other women in the industrial sectors.

Editor of PACE, Branko Miletic, said the program was important in recognising the contributions being made by women to the changing face of industry.

“Women already working in the process and control engineering sector make up a big part of these support programs and are paving the way for others and achieving great success, and we think this needs to be recognised in its own right.”

The 2017 Women in Industry Awards are a prime opportunity to recognise the women who are driving change in your industry and – in doing so – breaking down barriers and creating new possibilities for the next generation.

“These may be women you work with, women whose achievements are inspiring you from afar, or women who are providing you with invaluable guidance and support and we believe their dedication and exceptionalism should be celebrated,” said Miletic.

Nominations have been extended to May 12, which means you still have some time people to nominate by going to the website, with tickets available online for the Awards and the conference.

The 2017 Women in Industry Awards will be held on Thursday 22 June 2017 at the Peninsular, Central Pier Shed C, Docklands in Melbourne.
