Fiona Hick: 2019 Outstanding Woman in Resources Winner
“It is inspiring to see how many more women are working in the resources industry since I first started 25 years ago.
The Women in Resources Awards recognise the contributions of many people – who coach, mentor, and give women opportunities to contribute. They are also a testament to all the women who came before me – the trailblazers who showed us what’s possible. It’s great to see the diversity of our industry is improving and I believe the Women in Resources Awards have played a key part in that.
Professionally, I was appreciative and proud of being recognised by my peers and others in the industry. Personally, I think it was good for my family to recognise that all their practical support was appreciated and they were very proud of the industry recognition.
I encourage other women in resources to back yourself and if someone suggests to you that you should apply for these awards or if you get offered an opportunity, then take it!”
