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 were hosted by the Tasmanian Minerals and Energy Council at the Hotel Grand Chancellor in Launceston, Tasmania on Thursday 31 August 2017.
The 2017 awards program also included a business networking forum which focussed on diversity and inclusion and the benefits to business.
