Future skills for women in mining

The future of mining is already here - it’s just not evenly distributed. However, it is reshaping the way we work and operate. So, a critical question is how do I develop and adapt my capabilities to manage my career today and perform into the future?

Future skills for women in mining is a series of practical workshops to support women at all levels play to their strengths and develop critical capabilities required for future success.

For companies, the workshop plays a role in the retention of women and provides capability development based around critical sector opportunities.

Who should attend?

Women at all levels in the mining sector that want to enhance their capabilities for the future of work.

When do registrations close?

Registrations will continue to remain open until further notice.

How many 1-day workshops are in the series?

We plan to hold a workshop and cover a different sector critical topic every three months. Future topics include:

-       Retaining our critical knowledge through boom/bust cycles

-       Future workforce strategy

Why are the 1-day workshops only 5 hours?

The workshop has been specifically designed to maximise participation of women with different levels of employment in the mining sector (e.g. not currently working, part-time or full-time)

Who is Rosemary Howard?

Rosemary has over 30 years' experience in executive leadership with a focus on technology, business and government. Rosemary was formerly the Executive Director at AGSM and CEO of Telstra Clear, New Zealand.

Who is Brett Cunningham?

Brett leads a research agenda into the future of work in mining and recently delivered the inaugural Future Minerals Workforce Program supported by the Minerals Council of Australia.

Brett works with a range of executive teams and high potential leaders in mining companies, METS and industry bodies in Australia, South America, Asia and Africa focused on driving individual, team and organisational performance.

What does accelerating innovation adoption mean?

Traditionally, the mining sector has been poor at adopting new technology and methods. Sometimes taking decades to institutionalise proven solutions.

Accelerating innovation adoption refers to ways in which the sector can increase the speed of co-creating, testing and institutionalising new technologies and methods.
