Profiles of Women in the Mining and Resources Industry - First Episode "One woman's rise to the C-Suite" - Jenny Purdie
We're very excited to kick-off our new "Profiles of Women in the Mining and Resources Industry" initiative!
Rising to the top of corporate Australia hasnít been easy. Jenny Purdie has worked in the mining and resources sector for over thirty years. Earlier this year she was appointed CEO of Adani Australia Renewables - a major player in the burgeoning green energy sector.
In this episode of the podcast Jenny talks about her rise through the corporate ranks and details the challenges of entering the C-Suite from an engineering rather than a business background. She also discusses how the energy and mining sector has changed for women over the last three decades and why having a family made her a better executive.
We're keen to hear your feedback on our first episode as part of the new initiative. Please let us know if you or someone you know might be interested in sharing your journey of challenge, hope and success in the industry!
