First launched by Women in Mining UK in 2013, the biennial 100 Global Inspirational Women in Mining (WIM100) publication, now in its fifth edition, highlights the incredible diversity of talent in mining and celebrates inspirational women and their stories. AusIMM is a proud supporter of this initiative and is delighted to see strong representation among its membership in each edition.

The WIM100 highlights the wealth of female talent within the global mining industry, celebrates their 'above & beyond' contributions to the industry, and identifies role models for future generations.

Judging criteria include being a trailblazer; making a positive and impactful change so the industry can operate in a more safe, sustainable and inclusive way; a commitment to advocating and empowering those working in the mining industry and beyond; and perseverance in the face of adversity. WIM UK received 915 nominations for 491 women from 61 countries.

Stephen Durkin, AusIMM CEO, said, 'AusIMM is championing a more diverse and inclusive sector that welcomes people to bring their own experience and expertise to our industry. Through initiatives like the WIM 100, we are delighted to celebrate the achievements of talented professionals, recognise the contributions they have made, and help encourage others to build a career in resources.'

Dr. Stacy Hope, Managing Director at Women in Mining UK, said, 'Congratulations to Australasia’s WIM100. These women are being celebrated because of their commitment to making mining a stronger, safer and more sustainable industry for everyone. We are incredibly inspired by their actions and look forward to following how their initiatives develop and grow.'

The 2022 edition of the WIM100 can be downloaded from the Women in Mining UK website.
