NAWO is Australia’s leading national network for women in operations, with a mission of increasing  female representation in traditionally male-dominated sectors like mining and manufacturing.

NAWO’s vision is to see gender diversity valued and balanced at every level in operations. Chief People and Culture Officer, Jen Green, said Fenner Conveyors are proud to support this vision.

“Our partnership with NAWO will focus on promoting gender diversity and inclusivity within our business, creating opportunities for women in operations to excel and reach their full potential,” said Green.

Partnerships & Funding Director, Fiona Evans, said NAWO promotes gender diversity, and recognition of its positive impact on business performance.

“Recognising that everyone plays a role in creating diverse and inclusive workplaces, we can support all genders to lead more inclusively, providing safe spaces to ask questions and have open conversations that will drive positive change,” said Evans.

Through this collaboration, Fenner Conveyors aims to:  

  • Promote Gender Diversity: Implement initiatives and programs that encourage the recruitment, retention, and advancement of women in all operational roles.

“This partnership is a testament to our ongoing commitment to creating a workplace where everyone can succeed. By working together with NAWO, we are taking concrete steps towards a more diverse and inclusive future within our business operations.”
