Amber Dean

After leaving school with a vague ambition to work with people, I began a Bachelor of Arts but found it too broad. Transitioning to a more specialised Bachelor of Behavioural Science, I found my passion in organizational psychology and social science research. While at uni, I saw a casual “Research Assistant” role advertised in market…

Jessie Nott

I completed high school in 2012 and continued to work for my gap year. I didn’t know what I wanted to do; I only knew that I did not want to go to university. I saved all my money in my gap year which funded a working holiday to Canada for the following 12 months.…

After visiting Townsville on a holiday, I made the decision to…

Kat Norman

Looking back, the resources industry has always been a part of my life. I grew up in the Hunter Valley, the second youngest of 8 kids, and my dad worked in the local coal mine. When I was 10, my family moved to Gin Gin in Queensland and lived an off-the-grid lifestyle.  When the time…

Designing and implementing female participation initiatives and events. Educating students, parents, and educators on construction careers for women. Engaging with clients, organisations and the community on industry…
