The Responsible Mining Foundation has been tracking gender action by mining companies since 2016 and the latest results are just in. The findings again show striking contrasts in what companies choose to focus on – gender balance in headquarter teams is quite widely addressed while gender in affected communities and in the workplace is largely ignored. And despite much talk about gender and women (these terms are typically mentioned dozens of times in companies’ sustainability reports), gender action is still very thin on the ground at mine sites, including for women mine workers.
