Since 2015, the IWiMSpeakUp initiative has focused on the promotion of women as experts and leaders in their corresponding areas of knowledge at industry meetings, conferences and thought-leadership initiatives throughout the world. For this, we partner with event organisers and connect them with highly qualified women who become speakers, panellists or expert participants.
Through this initiative, IWiM aims 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.
If you are an event organiser, we’d like discuss your event’s agenda and speaking opportunities. Additional to providing you with first rate expert speakers, we can also promote your event among our community of 13 000+ members worldwide, on our social media channels, our newsletters, and among local and/or regional WIM organisations and to other stakeholders.
Open call for speakers
If you or someone you know is a highly qualified woman in any discipline and/or area of the mining value chain, from any region in the world, we invite you to be part of the “IWiM Speakers Database”. Please complete the form here to nominate speakers – you can fill it out as many times as you need.
If your company would like to become a Corporate Partner to showcase your female talent at these conferences, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
