The mining lobby Straterra and the NZ branch of AusIMM are promoting the availability of scholarships of up to $7,000 for mining and resources sector women in the country.
Straterra reported that building on the “significant developmental momentum” achieved in 2018, Women & Leadership Australia is administering a national initiative to support development of female leaders across NZ’s mining and resources sector.
The campaign is providing women with grants of between $3,000 and $7,000 to enable participation in a range of leadership development programmes.
The scholarship funding is provided with the intent of providing powerful and effective development opportunities for mining and resources sector women. However, funding is strictly limited and has to be allocated prior to the end of March.
Expressions of interest will close on March 15.
