Four days to go for the International Women In Mining photo competition!
Celebrating women’s contribution to the mining industry through a diverse lens is the aim of the International Women in Mining (IWiM) photo competition. IWiM welcomes a broad range of submissions from across the mining value chain: submissions that send a powerful message on women’s role in mining from industries, governments, NGOs, and academia are encouraged.
Sponsorship from De Beers Group has funded prizes. Entries close on 16 April and will be judged by a distinguished panel including Bruce Cleaver, CEO, De Beers Group; Dr Sharman Stone, Ambassador for Women and Girls, Australia; Tom Butler, CEO, International Council on Mining and Metals (ICMM); Veronica Nyhan Jones – Global Head of Advisory Services for Infrastructure and Natural Resources, IFC.
IWiM hopes to use the winning entries in a travelling exhibition and celebrate women for their significant footprint in the mining sector.
View a selection of submissions and submit entries at http://internationalwim.net/ by April 16.
