The goal of the IWiMSpeakUp project is to draw on IWIM’s accomplished membership to promote more diversity among international mining conference panels and speakers. The project aims to establish relationships with major mining conferences around the world, and working with organisers to enable qualified and accomplished female leaders to be more represented on conference speakers lists. In addition to making qualified women speakers more visible to international mining conferences, the project aspires to break down barriers women might commonly experience while pursuing speaking opportunities, such as obtaining funding for travel and conference registration.

I joined the IWiM association to network with others in the mining industry. I was excited when I read about the SpeakUp initiative to increase the visibility of women speakers at mining conferences. I had always wanted to speak publicly but did not know how to go about to participate in a conference. IWiM opened the doors to the Mining Show, a conference in Dubai where I spoke about the challenges women face in the mining industry. To be able to address a large audience with Ministers and CXOs in attendance on this important topic was an enriching experience and allowed me to increase my visibility. I am thankful to the IWiM association for selecting me to be the first person to participate this in the SpeakUp project. My participation in the Mining Show conference opened doors for me and now I am speaking at EY to officially launch the EY (WIM-UK)’s publication related to advancing women in mining. I am forever indebted to IWiM and hope other women take advantage of the many opportunities provided by IWiM.” -Nita Singh
