As the Manager of Technology Integration, Michelle is helping to inform and shape the technology and automation strategy at Rio Tinto. She is driving the acceleration of business benefit from technology and delivering process and productivity improvement in their core mining processes. Michelle has been actively involved in the VET Strategy program to upskill and reskill the current and future RTIO workforce for the skills requirement automation and technology bring. She is a role model to young women and an active mentor to a number of men and women in the industry. Michelle strongly believes that people continue to make the difference to business success. Even as we move to a more automated world, leadership, engagement and culture will be the point of difference. Michelle’s experience balancing full-time work, a young family and a FIFO husband has shaped her commitment, as a leader, to support flexible work arrangements including work location, flexible hours, and job sharing. She believes that enabling a working environment where team members feel that they are supported both at work, and home creates a more committed workforce. She has built a team where colleagues support each other, are safer and more productive.
