Great Debate: Diversity under the spotlight

This year the Gold Industry Group's Women in Gold Sundowner, in conjunction with Women in Mining WA, will be held on Friday 17 November at The Perth Mint.

Is the pathway to eliminating gender inequality in the workplace to stop fixing women and start fixing the system? 

Hear from our esteemed debating team as we put diversity under the spotlight:

  • Barry Bloch – Chief Operating Officer, Project Support:  BGC Contracting (affirmative)
  • Katie-Jeyn Romeyn – Career Acceleration Expert, Author and Founder: Katie-Jeyn Romeyn International (opposing)
  • Cassie O'Connell – Advisor, Human Resources:  Gold Fields, Agnew Gold Operations (affirmative)
  • Breanna Cameron – Edith Cowan University (BEng), Production Mining Operative (opposing)

The evening will be hosted by Gold Industry Group Director and Gold Road Resources Non-Executive Director Sharon Warburton. The debate will be adjudicated by Gold Industry Group Vice Chairperson and Gold Fields Vice President of Legal and Compliance Kelly Carter.

Thanks for the support of Catherine Fox, whose book Stop Fixing Women, is the inspiration for this event. 

The inaugural Women in Gold event held last year was one of the highlights of our events calendar with more than 300 industry professionals turning up to hear Gold Industry Group Vice Chairperson Kelly Carter and Director Sharon Warburton share their inspiring stories and experiences in the industry.
