On the 15th of November, Women in Mining launched the 2018 Edition of Top 100 Global Inspirational Women in Mining.

The publication aims to showcase the range of female talent within the global mining industry and to identify inspirational role models to encourage future generations of women to consider mining as a career choice.

This year a record 642 nominations were received from both women and men from around the world and across the different facets that make up the mining industry, highlighting the very real contribution women are making on a daily basis.

The 100 women featured in the 2018 Edition were selected by a panel of judges for the way they have persevered in the face of adversity, found solutions to challenges, and empowered others by being a voice and role model for diversity and inclusion.

Appointed to the international committee at Women in Mining, Global Mining Recruitment Specialist at Search Consultancy, Jenniffer Otero Fraga continues to connect with female role models to gain a better understanding of how to best support women in mining across the international landscape.

She said: “As we recognise the contribution of women in mining by celebrating the incredible journey of 100 inspirational women, I am delighted to continue my role in supporting women across the international mining scene.”

“While I have been privileged to connect with some of the industry’s greatest female leaders, there’s no denying that we still see a lack of equal representation across the sector. Mining is no different than any other male dominated industry, where attracting and retaining women in non-traditional roles and developing women to senior leadership roles is a difficult challenge.”

“The more women we have changing the dynamic at the top of the industry, the quicker we will reap the rewards that diversity can deliver. In my role as a recruiter on behalf of the industry, I’m committed to supporting female talent in the sector, as well as businesses looking to grow their workforce in a talent-short industry,” she concluded.
