Adelaide Brighton Cement “Women in Industry” Open Day

On Friday 10 November the Adelaide Brighton Cement Birkenhead Plant welcomed 20 female Year 10 students from Mount Carmel College in Rosewater to its inaugural "Women in Industry" Open Day, which was officiated by the Hon Susan Close MP, Member for Port Adelaide, Minister for Education and Child Development and Minister for Higher Education and Skills.

The purpose of the "Women in Industry" Open Day is to expose Year 10 students to the range of career opportunities in industry, to provide an insight into what industry does and potentially spark an interest in job prospects within local industry.

"It is great to see initiatives from local industry that create opportunities for high school students in the region to learn about career prospects that are offered in industry. It is particularly encouraging to see programs that provide female students with first-hand information about the diverse career pathways available," said Hon Susan Close MP.

During the course of the day, participants met with and participated in activities with female role models from Adelaide Brighton Cement, as well as being taken on a site tour of the Plant and its operations.

"Our goal at Adelaide Brighton Cement is to establish a culture across our business where diversity is the norm and where women feel they can thrive and actually do so. The "Women in Industry" Open Day program is one of our initiatives to achieving this goal, said Tu Bui, South Australian Operations Manager.

Adelaide Brighton Cement has a number of programs planned with local schools in the north western region, including an Industry Open day for male students in 2018.

"Our Industry Open Days will be an annual event for Adelaide Brighton Cement and we encourage any local high schools interested in participating in an Industry Open Day to get in touch with us," added Tu.

Adelaide Brighton Cement is committed to being an inclusive workplace that values and promotes diversity thereby enabling us to attract people with the best skills and broad range of attributes.
