MCA was proud and excited to announce the winners of the BHP 2020 Women in Resources National Awards.

The six winners were selected from a field of 37 high achievers and deserving finalists, with so much talent that four highly commended acknowledgments were also given.

Statutory officials will need to understand Queensland law under new Government

These awards show the significant role women play in improving the industry across all sectors and at all levels. They also highlight the diverse, challenging and rewarding careers in STEM, social sciences and trades on offer across the resources industry. MCA will be sharing their stories on social media over the coming weeks.
