Dear Women in Mining,

This year’s Women in Mining Conference hosted over 120 women and a few gentlemen who were afforded the opportunity to hear from some of the most influential women in the mining sector.

This unrivalled speaker line up consisted of women from executive level to women at the core face of mining which helped knit together the vision of this conference, “Moving away from the integration to the development of women in mining sector”

THE TOP 5 SPEAKERS, AS PER YOUR EVALUATION FORM ARE AS FOLLOWS:

  • Bridget Radebe, Executive Chairperson, MMAKAU MINING
  • Cynthia Carroll, Former Chief Executive, ANGLO AMERICAN
  • Dr. Jeanette E. McGill, Competency Area Manager, CSIR: CENTRE FOR MINING INNOVATION
  • Sarah Luthuli, Vice-President: Corporate Affairs and Human Capital, FOSKOR (PTY) LTD

SOME OF THE KEY CONCLUSIONS NOTED DURING THE OPEN FORUM INCLUDE:

  • Women need to keep thriving by going the extra mile and doing tasks that are beyond their minimum job description, building positive relationships with people around them
  • Technical jobs in mining are specialized either for underground or open pit – get a balance to grow your career, and switch commodities, you have to set a professional goal, figuring out what you have to do to get there, and get to work
  • Women need to package and brand themselves for the future
  • Developing a genuine female network , by attending informational platforms like the ITC conference and becoming a part of online information sites
