Welcome to the WIMARQ Networking Group Women in Mining and Resources Queensland (WIMARQ) is a sub-committee of The AusIMMís Women in Mining Network (WIMnet) and is supported by The Queensland Resources Council. WIMARQ is a group of volunteers who provide support, mentoring and encouragement to women who are working in, studying for or taking a break from the minerals and energy sectors.
We recognise companies and individuals who champion gender diversity and make available information to inform our members about gender diversity issues, strategies and statistics.
WIMARQ organises events aimed at bringing together women in all areas of the resource sector including people from the mining, exploration, metals processing, oil and gas industries. Women and men from all sections of the sector are warmly welcomed to attend events to meet others and expand their networks. WIMARQ events are held in Brisbane and regional locations with the help of our state-wide body of volunteers. These events are a great way to connect with others in our sector, to stay informed and to keep your career on track.
We hope you are able to come and join us at our next function.
Upcoming events for both WIMARQ and related groups, and relevant news articles about gender diversity issues are displayed regularly on our Facebook and LinkedIn pages.
If you're interested in hosting a WIMARQ event or getting a group going in your area, please contact us for assistance.
