Our aims are to lead global change towards gender equality in mining by acting as:
- as Industry Change Agent, to make mining a better industry through diversity, gender equality and inclusion; We achieve this via projects and campaigns like our mentoring programme
- as WIM Champion, to strengthen women in mining organisations to achieve global cohesion and leverage their game-changing collective strength; as well as celebrating individual women in mining - and
- as Diversity Trend Setter, to collect and dispense knowledge supporting the enhancement of women’s role and participation.
We operate with the support of sponsors and partners, and rely on a team of volunteers without whom we could not achieve our goals; Our volunteers and directors are based all over the world and bring different perspectives to the organisation.
