The gender session held this year at PDAC, the world’s largest mining conference, would certainly not have been on the programme a decade ago. Delegates heard personal stories from female mining executives of how they had been ignored, side-lined or abused earlier in their careers. They also heard about the #MeTooMining initiative and its practical advice for what witnesses of sexual harassment or violence can do. And mining company representatives talked about their efforts to overcome the biases and barriers limiting the recruitment and retention of women workers.
