Innovation Drives Mining Efficiency, But Also Accessibility For Women

Even though the mining industry has come a long way in providing more opportunities for women, women still only make up 12% of the industry’s workforce.

The adoption of new innovations and technologies can contribute to increasing the number of women working in the industry, says Women in Mining South Africa (Wimsa).

The organisation said during a webinar hosted as part of the  Electra Mining Africa 2020 Connect virtual event, for which Creamer Media’s Engineering News & Mining Weekly is a partner, that as mining continues to modernise, it is opening up more opportunities and incentives for women to work in the industry.
