Award Sponsor

Lindsay Gerrard from INPEX

The INPEX Australia Outstanding Tradesperson / Operator / Technician Winner for 2023 is Lindsay Gerrard from INPEX.

This award recognises the achievements of tradeswomen, operators or technicians in the resources sector in the Northern Territory, breaking new ground for women in non-traditional fields. It also recognises her resilience, achievement of goals and mentoring of other women in these fields.

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. She has invested in building solid relationships and providing apprentices with valuable guidance and advice. Lindsay’s efforts have helped many new inexperienced people entering the industry overcome the challenges they face and navigate their way in this demanding field. Lindsay has also made meaningful contributions to the community volunteering at school events and participating in mentoring programs on site and on country.

Lindsay has consistently shown leadership and broken new ground in her field, making her a role model for others in the industry. In 2022, she was promoted to a Work Execution Lead role during the 2022 INPEX Shutdown, making her the first female to hold such a position in the field and has recently been offered a direct role with INPEX.
