Diversity and inclusion

At AusIMM we are committed to creating a diverse and inclusive resources sector that fosters the support needed for every professional, regardless of gender, to succeed.

AusIMM’s Council for Diversity and Inclusion

AusIMM has a proud history of supporting women in the resources sector through our Women in Mining Network (WIMnet). This commitment to diversity has been reinforced through the creation of AusIMM’s Council for Diversity and Inclusion and our annual Women in Mining Survey which is launched each year during our International Women’s Day event series.

In 2018, there were 21,962 women working in the Australian mining sector, a number which has been steadily increasing each year. Whilst there is progress and momentum with an increase of women in management roles and a reduction in the gender pay gap, we must maintain this trajectory and continuously encourage change.

Participate in an event in a capital city near you as we continue the important conversation on the contribution of women to the industry and the need for better female participation, experiences and success.
