100 INSPIRATIONAL WOMEN IN MINING artwork Silvia Rodriguez Orocobre Limited November 19, 2018

Each year Women in Mining (WIM)* publish the Top 100 Global Inspirational Women in Mining book that showcases a great variety of inspiring women with interesting careers in the Metals & Mining sector. While this publication represents a fantastic opportunity to appreciate the success stories of numerous female role models currently in the sector, we must also remember the sector continues to face diversity shortcomings.

While the business case for diversity and inclusion is widely recognised and many mining companies have begun to change the way in which they approach this issue, change across the sector as a whole has been slow. Complacency appears to be the biggest challenge and without a deliberate goal of prioritising diversity and inclusion as making good business sense, the pace of change is unlikely to improve.

Orocobre Limited were immensely proud to see Silvia Rodriguez (Shared Value Manager) featured in the 2018 edition of 100 Global Inspirational Women in Mining. Silvia was one of 642 nominations from around the globe being recognised by their colleagues for their significant contributions to the mining industry.
