Inductees 2019 - Alexandra Atkins

Alexandra Atkins

Alexandra Atkins was part of the first wave of female STEM mining professionals, joining underground mining at a time when women were illegal, and taboo. After working on remote mine sites around Australia for 15 years, and witnessing multiple mine disasters, Alex became passionate about preventing mine tragedies and bringing about innovations which would make mining better. It led her to change disciplines from geology to mining engineering and geotechnical engineering, then to finance and governance becoming a mine engineer, mine manager and mining consultant to a government regulator, and now company director. Her determination, foresight and courage to challenge stereotypes and unconscious bias within the industry are legendary.
