Rio Tinto, Newmont move to promote gender equality in mining

According to Barbara Dischinger, IWRMP programme director, the four-year-old initiative has been equally beneficial to both mentees and mentors because it fosters a ‘reverse mentoring’ attitude that gives senior industry figures, both male and female, an opportunity to further hone their leadership skills.

“What makes IWMRP unique is its combination of global reach and intersectionality, which enables mentees to benefit from contact with mentors and fellow mentees that may not otherwise have been possible,” Dischinger said in a media statement.

“The programme is designed to meet the needs of the highly globalised mining sector, both now and into the future.”

Due to the covid-19 pandemic, the 2021 programme will follow the same online format in which it was offered in 2020.
