The Minerals Council of Australia Victoria Division is proud to host the fourth annual Victorian Women in Resources Awards.

Recognizing exceptional women in mining and diversity programs is vital if we are to meet the growing demand for Science, Social Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths professionals in Victoria’s high-tech, highly-skilled resources sector.

By celebrating women who are contributing to the success of the resources sector and championing diversity, the awards are an important recognition of excellence in the sector in Victoria.

The 2020 awards feature five categories:

  • Exceptional Woman in Victorian Resources
  • Exceptional Young Woman in Victorian Resources
  • Gender Diversity Champion in Victorian Resources
  • Outstanding Victorian Trade, Operator or Technician
  • Excellence in Diversity Programs and Performance Award.

Victoria’s resources industry extends from minerals operations in regional Victoria, the mining equipment to technology and service companies in regional and metropolitan areas to the corporate offices of major global mining companies in Melbourne.

Applications for the 2020 awards are now closed. Finalists from each of the categories will be announced in May.

Winners in each category are elevated to finalists in the Women in Resources National Awards
