For many years Senex has partnered with Queensland Resources Council (QRC) and Women in Mining and Resources Queensland (WIMARQ) to improve the progression of women in Queensland’s minerals and energy sector. This includes ongoing sponsorship of the QRC/WIMARQ Mentoring Program.

Senior Development Geologist Rachel Kieft knows first‑hand the positive effect that mentoring can provide. The former mentee‑turned-mentor credits her experience with the QRC/WIMARQ Mentoring Program for renewing her focus and passion.

“Diversity of thought and experience is critical to a well-rounded organisation. I’m pleased to be able to give back as a mentor to encourage young women to engage in STEM subjects that may lead to rewarding careers in our industry. Exploration Team Lead Rachel Kieft
