A GROUP of 28 women from the Australian resource industry have been recognised as part of the 100 Global Inspirational Women in Mining report recognising the impact of women within resource industry worldwide.

The report, compiled by Women in Mining (UK) promotes the significant impact of women within the resource industry worldwide.

Speaking in the foreword, Women in Mining chairman Amanda Van Dyke outlined that the Women in Mining UK 100 Global Inspirational Women in Mining Project is an international collaboration between women in mining groups from the UK, Australia, Canada, South Africa and the United States.

“It is widely acknowledged that inspirational role models can play a large part in inspiring a new generation of professionals and we aim to facilitate development in this arena,” Ms Van Dyke said.

“Those we selected stand out in a number of ways. They have a lasting impact on the industry. They support other women in mining, and the communities and environments impacted by the industry.

“We wanted to make sure that regardless of career stage, discipline or jurisdiction, the end result also encapsulated how diverse and high achieving women in our industry are.”
