About this Event

Come and hear Queensland's top woman in resources speak at this special event during the Queensland Mining Industry Health and Safety conference hosted by the Queensland Resources Council (QRC) and Women in Mining and Resources Queensland (WIMARQ).

Jo-Anne Dudley won this year's Exceptional Woman in Queensland Resources award in the annual QRC/WIMARQ Resources Awards for Women. She is a finalist in the Women in Resources National Awards to be presented at Parliament House in Canberra in September.

Jo-Anne will give some personal perspectives on her health and safety journey along with some special insights into a woman's perspective of the mining industry.

Jo-Anne, Senior Manager Strategic Mine and Resources Planning with Rio Tinto, travels regularly to Mongolia and manages 30 people across three locations; Brisbane, Ulaanbataar and the Oyu Tolgoi Mine Site. She has been a regular guest lecturer in Caving Studies at University of British Columbia, and chaired WIMARQ in 2008 and 2009. A member of the University of Queensland Women in Engineering Initiative Advisory Board, Jo-Anne helps promote the entry of women into engineering, support them at university and prepare them for post-university life. ‘To ensure that not only the strongest survive those early, and often lonely years, I am a passionate participator in the WIMARQ/QRC mentoring program,’ she said. Jo-Anne was only the second woman in NSW to gain an underground mine manager certificate and is one of only two female Competent Persons in Rio Tinto for reporting ore reserves and mineral resources under the JORC code.

Men and women are welcome and we look forward to seeing you there.
