Mining Talent: Why the mining sector needs women now more than ever and what to do about it

Women are underrepresented at all levels within mining companies, and account for <17% of the mining workforce globally. But we know that diverse teams are measurably more productive, and tend to have better safety records. Diversity promotes creativity and strategic resilience, and mining companies will need both if they are to successfully meet the broadening challenges facing the industry today. So – what are we to do? This talk will explore ideas, to not only attract more women into the sector, but also to make sure that once hired, women stay, advance professionally, and bring the best of themselves to the companies in which they work.
