Women in Mining & Resources Queensland

Welcome to the WIMARQ Networking Group

OUR VISION: A diverse community of passionate people collaborating to connect, nurture and support women to achieve their goals within the Queensland minerals and energy sector, and a thought leader reference group which influences the sector to improve gender diversity and inclusion outcomes.


What we do:

WIMARQ is a group of volunteers who organise opportunities for the mentoring, support and encouragement to women who are working in, studying for or taking a break from the minerals and energy sectors. WIMARQ recognises companies and individuals who champion gender diversity and make available information to inform our members about gender diversity issues, strategies and statistics through the annual Resources Awards for Women. Women and men from all sections of the sector are warmly welcomed to attend our events, which are held in Brisbane and regional locations. Check out our Facebook and LinkedIn groups to keep up to date. If you’re interested in hosting a WIMARQ event or getting a group going in your area, please contact us for assistance. Women in Mining and Resources Queensland (WIMARQ) is a reference group to the Queensland Resources Council.
