International Women’s Day Event Series


5 – 12 March 2021 #CelebratingWomeninMining #ChooseToChallenge

AusIMM is committed to creating a diverse and inclusive sector for all people working in resources.

Celebrate the achievements of women in mining at AusIMM’s International Women’s Day Event Series 2021.

These special luncheons will be held in five Australian capital cities from 5- 12 March 2021 and will feature presentations from high-profile keynote speakers, including Rabia Siddique in Perth, Dr Cathy Foley AO in Sydney, Professor Caroline McMillen AO in Adelaide, Yemi Penn in Brisbane and Shadé Zahrai in Melbourne.

These highly anticipated keynote presentations will align with the 2021 International Women’s Day theme of #ChooseToChallenge to inspire attendees on how we can choose to challenge gender stereotypes, celebrate women’s achievements and collectively create an inclusive world.

Over 1,500 delegates are expected to attend the national Event Series, either in person or via livestream of the Perth event.

We hope you can join us.
