School CEO, Women in Industry Advocacy Award finalist

Published 09th Jul 20 - by Hayley Jarick

School CEO, Hayley Jarick, is a finalist in the 2020 Women in Industry Awards in the Industry Advocacy Award category. Other finalists in this category are:

  • Elizabeth Molyneux – AGL Energy
  • Jacquelene Brotherton – Transport Women Australia Limited
  • Jodie Sainsbury – Kickass Women
  • Joy Marrocco – AGL
  • Rose Read – National Waste & Recycling Industry Council
  • Shay Chalmers – Strategic Engineering
  • Sonja Malcolm – Sydney Metro


The Women in Industry Awards recognise and reward the achievements of women working within the mining, engineering, manufacturing, process control industries and commercial road transport industries, and aims to raise the profile of women within industry, as well as promote and encourage excellence.

We asked Hayley what being a finalist meant to her, “When I was a teenager, I was privileged enough to hear a live address from Hafsat Abiola, an inspiration advocate for democracy, gender equality and women’s leadership in Africa and around the globe.  She responded to the imprisonment of her father and assignation of her mother by founding the Kudirat Initiative for Democracy (KIND) and continuing the progress her parents started. After hearing her story, many of us in the room wanted to know how we could help her. Her response has stuck with me ever since. She didn’t want us to help her. She wanted us to find a cause that had meaning for us and turn our passion to that. As a finalist, I have the opportunity to pay forward that gift and hopefully spark a fire in one of 2021’s nominees.”

The Industry Advocacy Award recognises individuals who have helped shape a positive view of their industry and/or helped to create a policy change that benefits those working in the sector.

The 2020 awards will be announced in a media campaign with awards partners Australian Mining, Pace Magazine, Manufacturers’ Monthly, MHD Supply Chain Solutions, Prime Mover, Trailer Magazine, Waste Management Review, Rail Express, Roads & Infrastructure Australia and Australian Bulk Handling Review. Finalists will feature in digital newsletters in July and in August magazine editions. Winners will be announced late August and feature in September editions.
