BHP presents the 15th annual QRC/WIMARQ International Women's Day Breakfast

Keynote speaker for the 2020 QRC/WIMARQ International Women's Day Breakfast is Katarina Carroll, Queensland's first female Police Commissioner in the service’s 159-year history.

Presented by BHP, the breakfast, which incorporates the presentation of the annual Resources Awards for Women, is an exceptional professional development event for people working in Queensland’s resources sector.

The awards recognise and promote company and individual achievements in improving the gender balance in our sector.

The breakfast and awards form part of the QRC’s Women in Resources Action Plan to increase the proportion of women in Queensland’s resources sector. The awards provide a platform to develop ambassadors, role models, champions and mentors to aid the attraction, retention and development of women in the resources sector.

The breakfast will be followed by the popular annual “great debate” featuring a panel of leading men and women in the resources sector. There will be plenty of opportunity for audience questions and interaction and networking both prior to and after the debate.

The breakfast will commence at 7:30am sharp and conclude at 9:30am.

The debate will start at 10:30am, allowing time to network over a coffee in between.
