SACOME, Friday 31 July, 2015

Inspirational women working in the South Australian resources sector were recognised and celebrated at the first ever South Australian Women in Resources awards, presented at a South Australian Chamber of Mines and Energy (SACOME) lunch today.

Four winning individuals were awarded from a pool of around 40 exceptional nominations, together with one company winner and one high commendation, at the event which featured a key note address by Toro Energy CEO and Managing Director, Dr Vanessa Guthrie.

The awards are an initiative of the Women in Resources South Australia committee (WinRSA, a SACOME committee), as part of its strategy to shape the future of South Australia’s resources sector by realising the benefits of the increased participation, retention and advancement of women. The committee will now nominate each State award winner for the National Women in Resources Awards, to be held later this year.

Congratulations to Jo Barron-Perry, Erin Woolford, Helena Wu, Sabrina McKenzie and Kate Hobbs!!
