Why women are leaving the Mining Industry and what Mining Companies can do about it


Women are underrepresented at all levels within mining companies. Yet opportunities remain for the industry to boost female recruitment, retention, and advancement.

 

Women represent an estimated 8 to 17 percent of the global mining workforce.  In addition to low labor force participation, the drop-off from entry level to executive for females in mining is among the most dramatic across all industries we studied. Breaking down the sector in terms of senior leadership roles, we see that mining is a laggard among laggards: female representation within mining company C-suites sits at 13 percent.  Among S&P 500 companies, there are only 30 female CEOs—not one of them comes from mining.

How an IIoT Solution for Mining Machines can be successfully introduced into a Quarry OperationHow an IIoT Solution for Mining Machines can be successfully introduced into a Quarry Operation

Many mining companies still do not know whether they are ready to implement IIot projects for mobile mining machines – and things often stay this way until they try out digitalisation for themselves in an in-house pilot project. Sometimes it is enough simply to go for it and learn from the experience. But what is actually possible and how can ‘digital transformation’ be applied in-house? The conditions and measures needed for such a successful digital transformation are outlined below from the perspective of a tech company that supplies hardware and software solutions and also supports clients through the introduction and implementation process....
