The inaugural Women in Extractives luncheon is being held in Christchurch on 10 March 2023.

This event is open to all and will hopefully be attractive to CEOs, managers, human resources and people capability professionals and women in the extractives industry (some of whom will be in the earlier roles).

The Women in Extractives luncheon will be jointly hosted by Komatsu, AQA, MinEx and Straterra.
