Elevating the Need for a Diverse Workforce

More than corporate lingo or trending topics being paid lip service, diversity and inclusion (D&I) - part of which is women in mining - has worked hard over the years to earn its rightful spot in an industry that's historically male-dominated. Fully backing mining's shift to include a more varied and vibrant workforce, SME is putting its best D&I foot forward in a myriad of ways.

At February's MineXchange 2020 SME Annual Conference & Expo in Phoenix, the "International I: Women in Mining" session co-chaired by Resa Furey of Stantec and Victoria Gosteva of Black & Veatch featured a well-represented panel for their insights and tips for a practical way forward where D&I in mining is concerned. Read more about this in the April issue of Mining Engineering and a question-and-answer panel executive discussion that followed.

The June issue of Mining Engineering will include another feature about this important programming at SME.

The new May issue of Mining Engineering is online now
The May issue of Mining Engineering, online now, features the U.S. Geological Survey annual reviews of critical minerals and mining. Also included is coverage of COVID-19 in the mining industry, managing gangue minerals and drilling for exploration targeting.
