International Day of Women in Mining 2024


International Day of Women in Mining (IDWIM) is an annual global campaign that seeks to raise awareness of the importance of gender diversity and inclusivity in the mining industry. By showcasing the achievements of all who identify as women in mining and promoting best practices, the day aims to inspire positive change and encourage stakeholders to become champions of gender equity.

IWiM Director, Barbara Dischinger says she extends a warm global invitation to all – not just women – to celebrate women's perseverance, contributions, talent, and spirit in the mining sector. IWiM will celebrate the day with a two-hour (14:00 to 16:00 BST) virtual event on Tuesday, June 18, 2024. During the event, guest speakers will share their work, practices and values on gender inclusion for women in mining everywhere.

"Join us at IDWIM 2024 as we gather to reaffirm our collective commitment to fostering diversity, inclusion, and empowerment within the mining industry. Let us harness the power of unity and collaboration to pave the way for a mining industry that celebrates the richness of its diverse talent and ensures equitable opportunities for all. Together, we can build a brighter future where every voice is heard, every perspective is valued, and every individual can reach their full potential." said Barbara.
