Aura, the only gold miner listed at Sao Paulo Stock Exchange, is committed to expand people diversity at its projects.
Aura Minerals’ President and CEO, Rodrigo Barbosa, signed an engagement letter for the inclusion of women in the mining sector. The document is an initiative of Women in Mining Brasil (WIM BRASIL), with support of Brazilian Mining Institute (Ibram), a movement that aims to strengthen and expand the participation of women in the mining sector.
“It is essential to go from intention to action on increasing diversity. Furthermore, our more decentralized management model requires richer discussions at our operations, and for this diversity plays an essential role. We have already signed the commitment with Woman in Mining in Mexico and we will also do it in Brazil”, said Rodrigo Barbosa. “The role of companies in the world today has changed, we need to be increasingly connected to society “, added Jorge Camargo, General Manager of Apoena.
In addition to seeking respectful attitude towards women at all levels of organizations, the Women in Mining movement also wants to enhance them as technical experts, with operational excellence and innovative spirit.
On March 2020, WIM Brasil launched the Action Plan for the Advancement of Women in Brazilian Mining Industry, a strategic tool for mining companies, suppliers and active organizations in the sector to implement actions that increase participation of women. The idea is to create inclusive and participative environments, aimed at building an innovative industry; and with positive impacts to society and shareholders.
