Mining has always been a male dominated industry. The appeal of digging giant holes in the ground with loud and heavy equipment has always attracted an overwhelming majority of male occupants. The number of female occupants, however, is not so much.

Kinross Gold is currently working to change all that by launching a number of initiatives around the world designed to help women improve themselves. Last year, Kinross partnered in the G(irls) 20 Summit to encourage young women to study STEM – science, technology, engineering, mathematics – and enter a world of mining as a career. Kinross also provides training, education and professional development programs to meet the needs of women in mining.

“In every operating country for Kinross we provide some program or initiative for the support of women. We feel as a strong corporate citizen in our local communities it’s important to provide opportunities for those women who can sustain themselves and their families,” says Amy Grace, head of talent management at Kinross.

“What we do to support women in the community includes the ability to train them with local skills to sustain and provide opportunities within their respected communities.”

With Kinross Gold at the helm, the outlook and impact of women in the mining industry is looking better than ever.
