A study of women on boards in the mining industry

This global report was published in conjunction with Women in Mining (UK) on trends of women on boards and senior executive positions in the global mining industry. It is the first of three reports.

Some key findings from this report include:
  • The mining industry has the fewest number of women on its boards of any other industry, with women occupying only 5 per cent of the board positions of the top 500 global listed mining companies.
  • Mining companies listed on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange had the best level of female board representation, while those listed on the London Stock Exchange had the lowest.
  • Profit margins are higher for mining companies with women on the board.
