women in manufacturing
Did you know that around one in four Queensland manufacturers are women, let's see this number grow! With new and rewarding opportunities arising in advanced manufacturing, attracting, maintaining and encouraging highly skilled women into this sector is key to further revolution and growth.
Some of the ATQLD team were lucky enough to join the Australian Industry Group and the Department of Regional Development, Manufacturing and Water for the Women in Manufacturing breakfast. A great morning of celebrating the women in the industry and discussing the importance of women contributing to and actively shaping the future of the sector.
At the breakfast, we were privileged to have two of our Walz apprentices Kiera O'Connor, 3rd-year boilermaker apprentice and Tiffany Vinten, 1st-year boilermaker apprentice.
A special thank you to Mel Ireland and Vickie Rapkis for hosting such an empowering and informative event!
