Batchfire team celebrates International Women’s Day

March 10, 2022

An industry breakfast hosted by the Queensland Resources Council (QRC) and Women in Mining and Resources Queensland was the perfect opportunity to celebrate International Women’s Day. 

Tanya Smith, Olivia Delise and Naomi Van Mol were part of the team representing Batchfire at the event held in the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre.  

We are proud to acknowledge the crucial roles of women within our business and are committed to building an even more diverse workforce, supporting our people through inclusive and flexible working policies.  

Enabling all our employees to thrive within a supportive environment is vital to Batchfire’s ongoing success.

On International Women’s Day, the QRC announced the results of its latest Inclusion and Diversity Survey. Batchfire Resources is a full QRC member. 

The survey found that women now comprise 20% of the total workforce within the sector. There are 53% more women working in resources than there were in 2015-2016.  

The proportion of women in project management roles has more than doubled in the past decade, while the number of women in trade roles has grown by 37% since 2015-16.  

Batchfire is also a committed supporter of the Queensland Minerals and Energy Academy which has a strong focus on providing resources industry career opportunities for female students.
