Applications are now open for scholarships that offer mentoring, inspiration and guidance for women in the mining industry.
Three DLGC-funded scholarships are available for West Australian women to participate in the Women in Mining and Resources WA (WIMWA) Mentoring Program.
The program provides mentees with career guidance and direction by sharing mentor and mentee experiences and developing career goals. Among the mentors are some of the most influential WA male and female leaders in the industry.
Now in its fifth year, the program offers access to industry leaders and outstanding mentors such as Sevi Rich, manager project/study development, BHP Billiton Iron Ore; Mike Erickson, senior vice president Australia, AngloGold Ashanti; and Kellie Parker, managing director, Pilbara Assets and Development, Rio Tinto Iron Ore.
Scholarship applications close on 30 October 2015.
Mentees must attend a two hour training session followed by a formal launch in February.
