Perenti Global technology business, idoba, recently welcomed major Japanese trading house Sumitomo Corporation as an equity investor. CEO Sarah Coleman has spent more than a decade in mining technology business leadership roles after previously working with Rio Tinto.
She says she is passionate about helping to build a more diverse, inclusive mining industry.
“It means a lot to me that a couple of amazing women – who are equally worthy of recognition themselves – put their energy into my submission,” Coleman says of being recognised as a finalist in the 2022 Women in Industry Awards.
“We are all very proud and excited to see what we’re doing at idoba being recognised nationally.”
