Mob Pod: Florence Drummond – Indigenous Women in Mining and Resources Australia

9 minutes

Florence Drummond, Dauareb Wuthathi woman, CEO and Co-Founder of Indigenous Women in Mining and Resources Australia (IWIMRA), is focused on raising the profile of Indigenous women in the mining and resources sector. Starting as a social network, Florence realised this conversation was missing from the industry, in which now the IWIMRA network is striving to contribute to. Working with industry partners and building best practice initiatives, IWIMRA is ensuring that they are co-creating opportunities that will enable pathways to leadership and future-focused roles. Florence also shares her thoughts on NAIDOC week this year.
