AER International attends the Women in Mining Conference 2017

AER International recently attended the Women in Mining Conference in Central London on Thursday 20th July.

Women in Mining seeks to encourage the hiring, retention and development of women in all facets of the mining industry.

The Women in Mining network also aims to serve as a means for WIM members to regularly convene, network and exchange ideas and information, and to create connections that allow their membership to support raise the profile of women in the mining sector, both locally and globally.

Coming hot on the heels of the production of our latest quarterly report about the gender imbalance in mining, it was a timely reminder of the superb efforts of women in all areas of mining and the progressive steps that still need to be taken by the mining business as a whole to advance women currently in mining positions and to encourage more women into seeing a career in mining as a worthwhile and prosperous one.
