After 10years of Inc. it's time for a refresh!

Over the last 10+ years we have grown with the resource sector to advocate for women, not just in the NT, we have a seat at WiMnet national forum, and also globally as a foundation member of the IWiM Alliance. We felt that in order to continue to grow our representation we needed to ensure we found ways to increase our connection and services to our members.

After being inspired to become an engineer by her high school maths teacher in the second year of university, Shannon took the leap and moved across the country to be a nipper on an argyle mine. Shannon was determined to change the opinions of some older male colleagues, and in doing so Shannon proved her competency, and developed a passion for underground work.

Santos Exceptional Young Women in Resources

Meg Parry has worked for Energy Resources of Australia on the Ranger Rehabilitation Project since March 2019. Meg started her career as a Rio Tinto Environment Graduate in the Rehabilitation and Ecology Team. She was eager to learn and quickly took on more responsibilities, including fieldwork, managing seeds, identifying gaps in the team’s study plan, designing and implementing research, reporting and presenting findings internally and externally, and improving old systems. Meg swiftly became a vital interface with numerous stakeholders, including state and federal government bodies, scientific regulatory boards, and traditional landowner groups.

As a proud Gamilaroi woman, Lindsay Gerrard has had an impressive career journey that has taken her from carpentry to electrical work, with a focus on instrumentation and control. Lindsay's dedication, hard work and talent have helped her achieve remarkable success and break new ground in her field. One of Lindsay's most significant contributions to the resources sector has been her commitment to mentoring and supporting female apprentices, as well as Aboriginal apprentices.
