THE 2014 AWRA (Australian Women in Resources Alliance) Forum takes place on November 19 and provides the resource industry’s leading event for gender diversity information, guidance and insight from across the mining, oil and gas sectors.

AMMA is pleased to announce the addition of two new speakers to an already stellar program.
Lucy Stocker is the founder and director of Diversity Network, a support initiative to empower women working in the mining, oil and gas sectors. An engineer and gender diversity consultant, Lucy’s expertise will prove invaluable to forum delegates.

Ms Stocker will join a host of other panellists on the 2014 AWRA Forum Debate to tackle the topic of whether or not flexible working arrangements are possible for women in the resource industry, outside of head office roles.

From Leighton Contractors, Indigenous and community manager Seraphine Bray will also provide a special keynote address on cultural diversity in the workforce, focusing on how the construction group connects with local Indigenous communities.

Ms Bray is a passionate about Indigenous employment, experienced in negotiating with Indigenous leaders and designing pathways and strategies for business, projects and communities for effective stakeholder engagement.

With gender diversity becoming at top priority for Australia’s largest employers, the 2014 AWRA Forum is a resource event AMMA members won’t want to miss.
