Supporting A Skilled And Diverse Future Workforce In Mining

The Opposition Leader’s budget in reply speech tonight rightly highlighted respect for the contribution of miners, particularly in regional Australia.

Mining plays an essential role in job creation, training and education, including actively supporting female participation.

Women represent 16.4 per cent of the minerals workforce (some 34,000). The ALP’s $6.2 billion childcare plan will provide more women with access to the workforce and build greater gender equity across all industries.
