100 Global Inspirational Women in Mining

In 2013 WIM UK began an incredible journey to recognize women of significance that have contributed to the mining industry. The first publication of “100 Global Inspirational Women in Mining” documents the “significant and varied impact of women within the global mining industry”.

Subsequently, WIM UK has recognized additional women in three more publications in 2016, 2018, and 2020. To date, 400 women have been showcased from 1500 nominees from around the world.

From the 2020 100 Inspirational Women In Mining:

“This book illustrates the incredible diversity of roles and careers in mining beyond a stereotype image, and the diversity of the way in which these women entered the industry. The common thread running through their stories is their advice to all women to be bold, confident, agile, and to support each other.

Having visible role models is critical if we are going to attract and retain more women to help solve the challenges of global development and the responsible supply of resources for future generations.”
