Introducing the Inaugural AEMEE National Resource Sector Awards
The AEMEE National Resource Sector Awards presentation will highlight the success of Indigenous businesses that service and support the resource sector in Australia and other businesses that support Indigenous business development and Indigenous employment through strong leadership, good management, effective partnerships and bold and innovative thinking.
The Mining and Resource Sector is the largest private sector employer of Indigenous Australians and a long history exists between these parties, which has led to this success. The resource sector is clearly a big spender in this space with over $10 billion worth of investment over the past 10 years. In this sector there are a number of stories of Indigenous businesses doing well on the back of this huge investment and there are a number of great stories from resource companies that have supported and developed very successful Indigenous economic/employment development programs. AEMEE developed these awards to recognise the contribution of the resource sector and the Indigenous businesses that have succeeded in this space.
AEMEE has officially launched the 2018 National Resource Sector Awards and call for nominations in 3 major categories;
2018 New Indigenous Business of the Year
2018 Resource Sector Business of the Year
2018 Indigenous Business of the Year
The awards will be presented at the 14th Annual AEMEE Conference, in Fremantle, Western Australia, on the 11th and 12th of October 2018.
