Women in mining
We are committed to the progress and advancement of women at South Deep, and especially to increasing the participation of women at all levels of management. We offer women an equal opportunity to participate in all our operations, at all levels of responsibility.
Initiatives undertaken to ensure we achieve these objectives include:
- Giving preference during recruitment to women who meet the requirements of the job and show capacity to perform the job description.
- Once all the applications have been received for a particular position these are reviewed according to the required competencies, experience and qualifications necessary for the task. Again, preference is given to women who meet the requirements of the job.
- We are committed to identifying female employees with potential and training them to acquire necessary skills and expertise.
In Q1 2020, 23% of South Deep’s full-time employees were women. Of our management team 19% were women.
