The Harmony Gold Mining Company Limited (Harmony) “Bereka Mosadi” (Tswana for “working woman”) communication initiative - which started in 2017 - highlights the women that are excelling in their respective leadership roles at Harmony, and gives all Harmony employees insight into their lives and journeys.
Harmony is proud of this initiative, which gives recognition to and profiles many of the women employed at Harmony’s underground and surface operations and further demonstrates the skilled, passionate, dedicated and hardworking contributions they make in their respective areas of responsibility. Harmony’s Bereka Mosadi women demonstrate and encourage ethical behaviour, passion, trust, compassion and respect for others. They are bold, fearless and face many challenges - yet still remain resilient, and bloom with grace in their respective areas.
Gender and race equality at Harmony
Harmony is committed to building and maintaining a representative workforce. During Harmony’s 2018 financial year a gender diversity strategy was approved by the board, which aims to improve women representation in management. The strategy sets specific annual targets for the proportional representation of women in management.

Harmony’s board currently has 24% female representation. Harmony’s remuneration policy is aimed at remunerating each individual’s ability, skills and knowledge. Men and women, irrespective of their race, are paid equally for equivalent roles. There is no differentiation in remuneration based on gender, race or any other arbitrary reason.
“We are committed to building and maintaining a representative workforce and to continuously promote a working environment which provides equal opportunities to all our employees without prejudice of any kind, especially gender based,” Peter Steenkamp, CEO of Harmony.
