Indigenous Women in Mining and Resources Australia
IWRA was founded to create a stronger connection with indigenous women in this traditionally male, non-indigenous dominated sector. IWIMRA is focused on creating a national framework that will support indigenous women who are currently participating and aspiring to grow within this sector. To reach our end goal, which is to establish positive role models within our industry, at decision making levels, we must start with positive daily conversations. Our thoughts become our words and our words become our actions. This is our guiding principle
