Paulina Gallego

I am a Mining and Metallurgy Engineer from the National University of Colombia. I work at Promine as a Technical Support Specialist, supporting our clients, performing training, webinars, and more. As a woman belonging to the mining industry, I am an advocate of the role we represent, as well as how highly qualified we are to be part of the mining sector alongside the male gender. In my free time, I thoroughly enjoy reading science fiction books, as well as watching movies or series of the same genre. I believe strongly in sustainable mining development, that is why my greatest desire is to be part of its development generating change, in order to show the world that responsible mining is possible.

✅ The Mining Experience is a live podcast that invites professionals from the mining industry to discuss new technologies, address challenges, and share work experiences.

In this episode, we had the honor to have 2 amazing women sharing their experiences in the mining industry.
We talked about the difficulties of being part of an industry that is largely male-dominated, why it is vital that women’s voice is heard for the mining sector to improve in equity, diversity and inclusion. We consider it is everyone’s responsibility to work for a transformation that benefits employees, communities, businesses and organizations.
