SACOME has formed an exciting partnership with Women In Resources South Australia (WinRSA), with the recent signing of a landmark agreement to formalise the group's integration with SACOME.

WinRSA was incorporated in 2010 to provide opportunities for women in the resources industry to network, discuss common issues and promote the participation of women in the resources industry in South Australia.

Over the past four years, WinRSA has run regular, free, technical and professional development events and programs for women in the industry. The WinRSA database currently includes 450 members and events now typically attract 100 people. WinRSA is primarily funded through the generosity of industry organisations Beach Energy, DMITRE, Finlaysons, OZ Minerals, PwC and Santos. These industry organisations will continue to support WinRSA as part of SACOME.

Julia Dnistrianski, Chair of WinRSA, said: “The resources industry offers a wide range of employment opportunities and careers and it is important that the minerals, oil and gas sectors are able to attract and retain the best talent, which includes both males and females.”

Jason Kuchel, Chief Executive of SACOME, said: “The Charter of WinRSA is consistent with SACOME’s objective to promote an enduring resources sector in South Australia.”

The WinRSA committee is comprised of representatives from Beach Energy, DMITRE, Finlaysons, OZ Minerals, PwC, Santos and SACOME, who also sponsor and support the initiatives of WinRSA.
