London – 15 November 2018: Women in Mining (“WIM”) are delighted to present the 2018 Edition of the “100 Global Inspirational Women in Mining”, which has once again been kindly sponsored by BMO Capital Markets.

The “100 Global Inspirational Women in Mining” aims to showcase the range of female talent within the global mining industry and to identify inspirational role models to encourage future generations of women to consider mining as a career choice.

This year a record 642 nominations were received from both women and men from around the world and across the different facets that make up the mining industry, highlighting the very real contribution women are making on a daily basis.

The 100 women featured in the 2018 Edition were selected by a panel of judges for the way they have persevered in the face of adversity, found solutions to challenges, and empowered others by being a voice and role model for diversity and inclusion.

Carole Cable, Chairman of WIM, commented: “This book is a living history of women working in mining and through their stories we learn how they have addressed challenges, empowered others and forged rewarding and important careers in the sector. The key themes emanating from the stories are the acknowledgement that much more needs to be done to improve diversity and inclusion, the challenge of attracting and retaining women, and their optimism that the industry has the ability to change further.

We hope this book, and others like it from WIM groups around the world, will strengthen the voices of women in mining to change attitudes toward diversity and inclusion. There is an incredible talent base out there – current and future – so our challenge is to break the models that don’t work and dare to increase the pace of change.”

Managing Director of WIM, Nichole McCulloch, said: “Today we acknowledge the contribution of women in mining by celebrating the incredible journey of 100 inspirational women.

With diverse experiences, roles and professions, these women are great ambassadors for our industry, showcasing the amazing talent we have. Yet we cannot remain complacent, with a lack of female representation at the leadership level, the industry must keep advancing its diversity and inclusion initiatives so that we can continue to compete for the best and brightest talent out there.”

Jeff Couch, Head of Investment and Corporate Banking, Europe, BMO Capital Markets, commented: “We are honoured to sponsor the 2018 Edition of the “100 Global Inspirational Women in Mining”. We have significant respect for all the achievements by the impressive women featured in this edition and congratulate each one of them.

As the marketplace becomes increasingly challenging, diversity is key to the success of any business. The creation of a strong pipeline of female leaders across all aspects of the mining lifecyle will be critical for the long-term sustainability of the mining industry.”
