WOMEN IN MINING DAY
WHAT YOU MISSED AT WOMEN IN MINING DAY 2017
‘Women in Mining Day’ was launched on 28 March 2017 as part of the Mining Investment Asia to relook at the issue of gender diversity in the mining industry, especially within the Asia Pacific region.
A macro view on this issue, in light of the 2016 announcement by BHP Billiton for 50% female workforce by 2025, was shared by Ms Yvonne Tan, HR Business Partner at BHP Billiton (Singapore) and Chairperson of the Diversity Committee at Women in Mining and Resources (WIMAR) Singapore.
Initiatives to improve the role of women in mining were also shared by speakers from the Philippines, Australia and China at panel discussions and presentations. With an audience of 50% men, ‘Women in Mining Day’ underlined the importance of close cooperation between both genders for long term progress on the issue of gender diversity.
Special thanks to our partners- International Women in Mining (IWIM) and Women in Mining organisations from Singapore, Mongolia, Philippines and British Columbia, Canada for their support in making this inaugural ‘Women in Mining Day’ a success.
Join us on 26 March 2018 for the 2nd edition of Women in Mining Day.
