Advanced Leadership Skills for
Women in Mining

JHB. Date: 15 - 16 February .23

Course Navigation

The global context for the mining sector is changing rapidly. Shifting
societal expectations, emerging technologies such as automation, and
increasing environmental pressures are combining to create a dynamic
and challenging environment. To succeed, leaders will need to be able to
think quickly and in innovative ways, understand diverse perspectives,
and lead with courage. In many industries, including the mining industry,
women in leadership roles face the additional challenge of having to work
through the proverbial glass ceiling.

  • learn about the changing global context of the mining sector
  • explore the concept of sustainable development and the role of mining in this context

  • explore your unique leadership style and the double bind women leaders face
  • develop strategies for dealing with different people, but still remain authentic in your approach
