- WIM Catch Up 2022 (0.88 MB)
International Women in Mining (IWiM) on 15 June 2022, launched the inaugural International Day of Women in Mining. The global celebration was launched to celebrate women’s perseverance, contributions, talent and spirit annually. It had a focus on the advancements achieved and the opportunities available for the industry to continue to become sustainable, diverse and inclusive. This special day has been set aside each year to celebrate women in mining and raise awareness of the need for gender equality measures in the mining sector.
This comes at a time when we are preparing for the 13th Annual Women in Mining Catch-Up and African Network Forum which will be held on 24 & 25 August 2022 at Indaba Hotel, Fourways. We have noted that the mining industry has come a long way in ensuring gender parity, however there is still more work to do.
African women have ascended in key positions making a difference in eradicating challenges that affect them within mining. With mines moving towards a more technologically savvy mining industry, it’s very important for organisations to upskill their workforce to work alongside technology.
The first day of the catch-up forum will include presentations from Marula Platinum Mine, Asanko Gold Mine, Goldfields Ghana, and SOUTH 32 just to name a few. Day two will include presentations from Caledonia Mining, International Women in Mining, Ministry of Mines and Steel Development Nigeria, Commission for Gender Equality, Debswana Diamond Company as well as Petra Diamonds Ltd.
Attend this conference and gain latest strategies on how to continuously grow within the mining industry, safeguarding transformation while creating more opportunities for women in mining.
