  • Posted on Friday 5th, May 2017.

The 2017 Women In Industry Awards will now include an all-day conference will take place 9.00am to 5.00pm on Thursday 22 June, at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre.

New to the 2017 edition, the all-day conference will include special presentations from Jennifer Conley from the Australian Advanced Manufacturing Council, Lyn George from AUSTENG and Kirsty Liddicoat from BHP Billiton.

According to organisers, the event will focus on 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 Women In Industry Awards are always such a fantastic opportunity to recognise those who have gone above and beyond in their industry,” said Events Manager, Lauren Winterbottom. “This year, the conference will provide an extra opportunity to appreciate the expertise, influence and results that women are contributing to Australia’s industrial scene.

“We’ve been impressed with the calibre of the women put forward for awards this year and, due to a high volume of last-minute submissions, have decided to extend the deadline from Sunday, 30 April to Friday, 12 May to make sure no one misses out.”

The awards ceremony will celebrate outstanding individuals in 10 categories Social Leader of the Year; Rising Star of the Year; Business Development Manager of the Year; Industry Advocacy Award; Safety Advocacy Award; Mentor of the Year; Excellence in Manufacturing; Excellence in Mining; Excellence in Engineering; and Excellence in Road Transport.
