Women In Resources National Awards
The Women in Resources National Awards (WIRNA) recognise and celebrate the contributions and achievements of women in Australia's resources sector.
Resource sector bodies throughout Australia have been promoting the value of increasing the proportion of women at all levels within the resources sector and these awards form part of that aim.
These awards are another valuable tool to create nation-wide awareness of women in the sector, and encourage other women to consider it as a career path.
The 2017 Women in Resources National Awards will be hosted by the Tasmanian Minerals and Energy Council at the Hotel Grand Chancellor in Launceston, Tasmania on Thursday 31 August 2017.
This year's awards also include a business networking forum which will focus on diversity and inclusion. The forum will run from 10am-2.30pm on Thursday 31 August, followed by the awards dinner and and presentations from 6.30pm.
