Award for Excellence in Leadership - Women in Resources

Women are still under-represented in high-growth industries such as mining and energy.

Some examples that may indicate excellence in leadership – women in resources might include, but are not limited to:

  • Developing approaches that embrace gender analysis and equity in the workforce (such as pay equity reviews and diversity forums)
  • Delivering targeted training programs to increase participation and retention of women
  • Actively supporting work-life balance through flexible work practices (for instance, for people with caring responsibilities)
  • Progressing initiatives to increase the number of women in leadership roles within the organisation
  • Providing opportunities for female tertiary students in relevant fields to pursue their careers in the resources sector

The South Australian Government’s Office for Women exists to pursue the full and equal participation of women in the social and economic life of the State. More information on their work programs and the participation of women in the workforce can be found at www.officeforwomen.sa.gov.au
