WIMnet TAS – Women in Resources Tasmania – Deadline Extension for Submissions of Nominations for 2020 Awards
The Women in Resources Tasmania Awards recognise the achievements of women in the mining, manufacturing and the resources sectors.
In doing so, they reinforce the benefits of gender diversity to business performance and raise the profile of the sector as an inclusive and rewarding career option for all young Tasmanians.
The Women in Resources Awards are inspiring greater female participation in the resources industry and helping the industry reach its goal of at least 20 per cent of women in non-traditional roles by 2020.
The Tasmanian Awards are held annually with winners of state categories going on to represent Tasmania in the National Women in Resources Awards event.
The Awards are a partnership between the Tasmanian Minerals & Energy Council and the AusIMM state WIMnet (Women in Mining Network) group.
The seventh annual Tasmanian Women in Resources Awards was launched on 20 February 2020 with entries accepted in five award categories until 31 May 2020.

As you are aware, the coronavirus is having an unprecedented impact on how we all do business. As we focus our attention on slowing the spread of this virus, we are all utilising our resources and time on keeping on top of the risks to our families and colleagues.
To enable and encourage participation in WIRTA 2020 we have extended the deadline for submission of nominations to 31 May 2020. We hope that this extension will enable nominees sufficient time to complete their submissions. The revised judging period is now planned for early June, with winners announced toward the end of June 2020. At this stage, it is likely that we will be unable to host an awards ceremony, but we will work to find a solution that facilitates appropriate recognition of the winners of these awards.
We anticipate that the current revised timeline will enable our State winners to participate in the Women in Resources National Awards, which at this stage are scheduled to be held in September 2020.
We apologise for any inconvenience resulting from the extension of the deadline for submission of nominations in the Women in Resources Awards Tasmania 2020.
The Women in Resources National Awards is a partnership between the Minerals Council of Australia and its Northern Territory and Victorian branches, the Chamber of Minerals and Energy of Western Australia, the Queensland Resources Council, the New South Wales Minerals Council, the South Australian Chamber of Mines and Energy, and TMEC, with support from various state Women in Mining Network branches. The awards profile women in the Australian resources sector, providing ambassadors and role models as an aid to the attraction and retention of women in the resources sector.
