An attractive mining industry – for everyone
Svemin is actively pushing the issue of improving the conditions for the women who currently work in the Swedish mining and mineral industry, as well as for more women to see the industry as attractive. That is why Svemin hosts the Swedish section of the Women in Mining network.
Women in Mining Sweden, WIM Swe, raises current issues in the industry, especially in the field of gender equality and diversity, with the gender aspect in the main focus. In this way, WIM Swe wants to improve the conditions for the women who currently work in the Swedish mining and mineral industry, as well as for more women to see the industry as attractive. The network’s goal is for the proportion of women in the industry to increase, in the boardrooms, in management groups as well as in the operations in general. Making good role models visible and raising women is therefore central. As part of this, WIM Swe produces a list of competent women in the industry, for the benefit of recruiters as well as the media, conference organizers and others seeking expert votes from the mining and minerals sector.
WIM Swe pursues its issues by mainly arranging seminars and other network meetings. Sometimes under our own auspices, sometimes with our sister organizations Metallkvinnor (Women of Steel) and Kraftkvinnorna (the energy sector’s network).
Everyone who works in the Swedish mining and mineral industry and shares WIM Sweden’s objectives can be members of the network. The member register is administered by Svemin. Membership is free of charge.
