Diversity and inclusion are about acknowledging different stakeholders that contribute to the growth of the mining industry. It’s about respecting, valuing, and realizing the unique roles that they all play in achieving a socially, environmentally, and economically viable industry. Varied voices bring about better discussions that consider the diverse nature of the world we live in. This will then translate into an industry that can adapt and pivot as the world's focus changes. Including all stakeholders regardless of their sexual orientation, gender, religious beliefs; whether they rank as secondary or primary stakeholders, creates an environment where issues that are important to ensure the sustainability of the industry are highlighted and addressed.
’When we listen and celebrate what is both common and different, we become a wiser, more inclusive, and better organization.’
