After a highly successful awards night in June this year that saw a record total of 160 nominations across 10 categories, the Women In Industry Awards will be moving to Sydney for 2024 – and nominations are now open!
The Women in Industry Awards recognise outstanding women from across a range of industrials sectors, such as mining, transport, manufacturing, engineering, logistics, bulk handling, waste management, rail and construction and infrastructure – all sectors that are traditionally male-dominated.
