:: International Women’s Day - Celebrating one of our Community's Finest: Professor Dee Bradshaw


Today is International Women’s Day which was formally adopted by the United Nations in 1975 (though was celebrated as early as 1909). It is regarded as an opportunity to celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. It is also a time to show future generations who our champions are to inspire them to strive for excellence in their own careers.

With that in mind, there is no more deserving woman to acknowledge today than Professor Dee Bradshaw. I had the chance to catch up with Dee to learn more about her career and to get her top tips for young professionals starting out in the minerals industry. Dee's career has taken her on a pathway which recently saw the launch of the book ‘Green Mining, Beyond the Myth’ which addresses the social, economic, cultural and political issues surrounding sustainable mining, and explores pathways to a better future for the mining industry. For many graduates and early career researchers, Dee has been a mentor encouraging them in their research endeavours with such infectious enthusiasm whilst always reminding them to consider the ‘philosophy’ component of their research. Her outstanding efforts were acknowledged by the University of Queensland in 2013 where she received an award for Excellence in Research Higher Degree Supervision
