The 2018 ‘100 Global Inspirational Women in Mining’ were announced in London earlier this week by Women in Mining which featured seven of Australia’s gold powerhouse leaders including our very own Vice Chairperson Kelly Carter.
Gold Industry Group members recognised in the top 100 as inspirational role models for future generations of mining women were Gold Fields' Kelly Carter, St Barbara Limited's Meryl Jones, Ausdrill's Alex Atkins, KCGM's Shannon Youd, Newcrest Mining's Gabriela Love and Xiaoling Liu and KPMG’s Denise McComish.
The Gold Industry Group’s third annual Women in Gold Great Diversity Debate at The Perth Mint saw its 300-strong crowd get behind the hashtag #womeningold18 to discuss corporate gender equity targets, sparking a national tour.
Hosted in conjunction with Women in Mining WA, the event recognises and promotes women in the gold mining industry and provides a platform on which to examine gender-related topics through its annual debate, which will take to the national stage in 2019.
One of the largest and most influential gender diversity events in the mining industry, the Gold Industry Group’s annual Women in Gold Great Diversity Debate will this year explore whether corporate gender equity targets are driving performance or promoting mediocrity.
The Gold Industry Group held its second Women in Gold Sundowner, in conjunction with Women in Mining WA, in November at The Perth Mint.
With a 300-strong crowd in attendance and the much-anticipated gender diversity debate exceeding expectations, it wasn’t long before the hashtag #womeningold17 was trending across Australia on Twitter.
