Terms of Reference for the Committee on Diversity and Inclusion in the Minerals Industry

The SAIMM committee on Diversity and Inclusion in the Minerals Industry will seek to advance the awareness of diversity (gender, ethnicity, religion and or other diversifying factors) and the need for inclusion in the industry through initiatives and activities that address the professional needs and aspirations of persons actively pursuing a career in the minerals industry. The committee will serve as a community that brings awareness to the industry on the importance of valuing the contributions brought by all diverse individuals.

The committee will:

  • actively explore ways that can encourage awareness on issues of diversity and inclusion in the minerals industry;
  • engage with SAIMM members to encourage diversity and inclusion in SAIMM activities;
  • serve as a forum for the discussion of specific issues facing diversity and inclusion in the minerals industry.

The committee aims to achieve the above professionally through sharing of knowledge and learning via activities such as presentation of technical papers at conferences, seminars, and running of workshops. The activities will also include students at universities.
