Women in Resources Awards

It was great to see that our members, associates, colleagues and sponsors participate and attend the 2022 Exceptional Women in Resources Awards.
It was nice to welcome Newmont as the Platinum Sponsor for the Awards. The awards showcase the outstanding efforts of the women, men and organisations in the NT's resource sector have made towards increasing gender diversity in their workplaces, sites and communities.

The committee is proud of how these awards have grown, and how they have become a peak event showcasing the talents of Territory women, including the talented young female performers who entertain at the dinner each year.
