Launched in 2015 and on a new growth trajectory, IWiMSpeakUp promotes active participation of women in industry meetings, conferences and thought-leadership initiatives, as speakers, panellists or expert participants.
IWiMSpeakUp supports event organisers by connecting them with highly qualified women in the discipline and/or region of interest, ensuring that the number and calibre of women speaking at industry events is representative of their place in the industry.
Working together, IWiMSpeakUp and forward-looking event organisers provide excellent opportunities to spotlight and leverage the experience and perspective of outstanding women in mining, and create visible change by redefining expectations of how industry expertise is presented and shared.

The AusIMM Social & Environmental (S&E) Committee would like to extend an invitation and seek expressions of interest to any members of Internal Women In Mining who would like to present a webinar through the AusIMM. Topics are varied and relate broadly to sustainable mining, environmental and social governance and performance. The webinars usually run for 50 minutes.
These webinars typically attract 20 – 50 participants who pay a small fee to AusIMM that covers logistical costs & provides a small income for the committee to support other initiatives. The S&E Committee who are all volunteers are constantly looking for quality presenters. If you would like present or know of anyone who is keen to build their industry or a related professional profile through this influential platform, the S&E Committee of the AUSIMM would appreciate them getting in touch.
The AusIMM promotes these webinars to members & opens them also to non-members with a substantial national & international reach.
If this is something that is of interest to you, please contact Kathryn East Kathryn.East@erm.com and Karin Fogarty, email@example.com and cc Catherine Galli on firstname.lastname@example.org.
