Gender Diversity in Manufacturing

Diversity in the workforce drives innovation and idea generation. Battlefield Sports will host this special event.

This event will feature a panel of prominent female trailblazers from the manufacturing industry.

  • Nicole Lander, Chief Fun Officer, Battlefield Sports, a laser tag equipment manufacturer
  • Kerrie Richards, co-Founder, Merino Country, a textile manufacturer, and fashion house.

Conversations and insights will cover topics such as the future of manufacturing, innovation, and the importance of women to industry's growth.  

Solving manufacturing problems needs diversity of thought, skill, and background. Queensland manufacturing businesses contribute more than $20 billion to our State’s economy. 

Around 1 in 4 manufacturers in the State are women and we hope to see this number grow through our ‘Women in Manufacturing’ initiative and other programs. It is important to encourage women to contribute to this evolving sector. 

Women in Manufacturing networking seminars and networking events highlight the importance of mentoring the next generation of women in industry.
