Summit a valuable resource
MORE than 40 students from Mandurah and Pinjarra participated in the recent Women in Mining and Resources summit, featuring academics, geologists, political commentators, authors and even a leading expert on men and masculinity.
The students, from Mandurah Catholic College, Halls Head Senior High School and Pinjarra Senior High School, were part of a delegation that took part in a breakout session that formed part of National Science Week.
The summit, Being Bold for Change, was at Crown Towers, Perth and offered a range of practical sessions designed to enable delegates to apply newly learned tools and techniques in their own workplace.
Women in Mining WA founder Sabina Shugg said the summit was a forum for women to share their experience with up-and-coming WA women eager to contribute their skills to WA’s mining and resources centres.
