IWiM Global Project | Industry Change Agent
Open to all women in mining
Launched 2015 and still growing
IWiMSpeakUp promotes women’s active participation in industry meetings, conferences and thought-leadership initiatives, as speakers, panellists or expert participants.
When IWiMSpeakUp launched in 2015, the percentage of women speaking at industry events was not representative of their place in the industry nor a priority for event organisers and participants. IWiMSpeakUp has had the privilege of supporting leading event organisers in addressing this by connecting them with highly qualified women in the discipline and/or region of interest.
IWiMSpeakUp and the forward-looking event organisers it supports have together not only provided excellent opportunities for the women thus nominated, but also created visible change in redefining expectations of how industry events are organised and presented.
