This new collaborative project, funded by an Arts-Engineering SEED grant, addresses the progression of women in the mining engineering profession. Despite the investment of both educational and training resources over several decades, women’s progression in mining – a crucial Australian industry – has been limited with women at only 13.4% of the country’s mining workforce. In management roles and/or Board positions in mining, women currently hold only 0.5% in Australia.
The Project will:
Gather together a set of video/audio resources showcasing the careers of successful female mining engineers who have progressed to managerial positions, accessible to potential students and postgraduates;
Produce a short report, anaylzing and synthesising international and local barriers and enablers of women’s success in mining engineering.
