With fresh opportunities emerging in advanced manufacturing, attracting highly skilled women into Queensland’s manufacturing industry is increasingly important.
Queensland’s manufacturing industry employs more than 170,000 people, with about one in four being women. With our ‘Women in Manufacturing’ initiative and other programs, we hope to see this number grow.
The Women in Manufacturing networking seminars highlight the importance of mentoring the next generation of women in the manufacturing industry and help establish supportive networks.
A key initiative of our Advanced Manufacturing 10-Year Roadmap and Action Plan, each seminar features a panel of prominent female trailblazers from the manufacturing industry. Conversations and insights cover topics such as the future of manufacturing, innovation, and the importance of women to the industry's growth.
These dynamic industry events are aimed at women working in the manufacturing industry and female science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) students, however, entry is open to women and men.
Please note the 2019 Women in Manufacturing series has concluded. However, planning for the 2020 Women in Manufacturing series is underway.
Connecting Women in Manufacturing – regional series
A special series of regional ‘Connecting Women in Manufacturing’ networking events are being presented by our SEQ North office. The next industry breakfast will be held on 30 October 2019 at Perfect Potion in Banyo. See registration details.
