Women’s Program reaches new Heights in Qld’s Resources Sector
WIMARQ Co-Chair and QRC Board Director Rob Jackson said the resources sector regularly reviewed its performance and set new diversity goals.
“Women make up 20 percent of the sector’s workforce, with almost 7,000 now directly employed in on and off-site roles, which is the result of deliberate goals and actions from across the sector over the last 15 years,” Mr Jackson said.
“We are striving to do even better. The QRC is forging ahead with plans to encourage member companies to reach 30% female workforce participation by 2026."
WIMARQ Co-Chair Sally Rayner said the mentoring program provides formal mentoring for women working in Queensland’s minerals and energy sectors, aiding in improving retention and progression of women in these sectors.
“The program has been extremely successful. By the end of last year’s program, almost 450 women had graduated from the program, with 96 percent of those surveyed saying it has had a positive impact on their career," Ms Rayner said.
“Inviting, encouraging, developing and retaining talented women to work in our sector means we are a lot closer to ensuring the longevity of our industry, because a diverse workplace culture is a stronger, smarter and more inclusive environment in which people can thrive.”
The aim of the QRC/WIMARQ Women’s Mentoring Program is to provide a structured, sustainable mentoring process that supports mentees through career guidance and direction by sharing mentor/mentee experiences, developing goals and forging exceptional mentoring relationships beyond the program’s duration.
The 2022 QRC/WIMARQ Women’s Mentoring Program is sponsored by Rio Tinto, Thiess, QAL, Alchemy Recruitment and Consulting, Idemitsu and Yancoal. The program is delivered by Metisphere.

In a new report, Closing the gaps, the Responsible Mining Foundation considers what is getting in the way of accelerated progress on ESG issues and fundamental rights across the this globally critical industry.
