Women leaders in mining within the borders of South Africa, will be gathering over two days on 30 & 31 August at the Indaba Hotel.  Although there are many events during women’s month this conference will aim to develop, unite and empower more women to take on the challenge in doubling the representation of women in this sector.

Ankia Roux, Co-founder of Pinpoint Stewards says: “we are making the final arrangements to host one of the biggest gathering of local leadership talent in mining, bringing attention to women leaders in the South African mining sector.  The women addressing the platform are more than capable and ready to take on the role of leadership and this platform will see the next CEO’s in mining stepping forward.”

She adds: “As part of our efforts to empower young professionals, ten geo-scientists students and their lecturer, from Wits School of Geosciences have been sponsored to attend the conference over two days. Students included are from undergraduate (2nd and 3rd year) and post-graduate (Honours and Master) levels. We are grateful to our sponsors Tshepa Basadi Group, River Minerals (Pty) Ltd, Total Energies (Pty) Ltd, Blue Hawk Tactical, Safer City and Ditsogo for making this possible.  Last year students from University of Johannesburg were included and introduced to the audience. We hope that job shadowing and career opportunities will flow from this initiative.”
