Women in Mining | Episode 12

By Gerson Robledo

✅ 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.
