QRC/WIMARQ Resources Awards for Women

On International Women’s Day each year (March 8), QRC and Women in Mining and Resources Queensland (WIMARQ) come together to host an IWD event and the Resources Awards for Women.

About this event

We hold this event to focus attention on the importance of providing a diverse and inclusive workplace, where everybody feels welcome. Encouraging and motivating companies to reach 30% female participation across our industry’s workforce by 2026 is also a key goal of the QRC’s diversity and inclusion strategy.
