Queensland manufacturing businesses contribute more than $20 billion to our state’s economy.

With new opportunities emerging in advanced manufacturing, attracting highly skilled women into the industry is increasingly important. Currently, around one in four Queensland manufacturers are women and we hope to see this number grow through our ‘Women in Manufacturing’ initiative and other programs.

Women in Manufacturing networking seminars highlight the importance of mentoring the next generation of women in industry and help establish supportive networks.

A key initiative of our Advanced Manufacturing 10-Year Roadmap and Action Plan, each seminar features a panel of prominent female trailblazers from the manufacturing industry. Conversations and insights cover topics such as the future of manufacturing, innovation, and the importance of women to the industry's growth.
