The 2022 Women In Industry Awards presentation night was held on September 8 in Sydney.
A big winner of the night was idoba chief executive officer Sarah Coleman, who took home the Excellence in Mining award.
The Excellence in Mining award recognises an individual who has made a positive contribution to one of the many facets of the mining industry.
“I honestly feel I’ve received this award on behalf of my whole team of amazing people at idoba, so it’s very exciting to see the team’s work be recognised on a national stage,” Coleman said.
“There is a really strong alignment between the Women in Industry Awards’ objective and the change we are trying to drive in idoba. As a business, we invest a lot in continually building a curious and inclusive environment that empowers diversity.”
Fulton Hogan general manager Sarah Marshall took home the Excellence in Construction and Woman of the Year awards, while Joanne Jeffs, Barbara Pitos and Nina McHardy were awarded the Social Leader of the Year award, Safety Advocacy award and Industry Advocacy award, respectively.
Helen Tower, who was named Rising Star of the Year (sponsored by Atlas Copco), said her award was not just a reflection of her own achievements, but was a testament to her entire team at CSL Seqirus.
The Rising Star of the Year award recognises an individual who has shown significant promise within their chosen industry or who has reached new goals at the start of their career.
