Kabelo Rathobei 07042022’Our ability to reach unity in diversity will be the beauty and the test of our civilisation.’ —Mahatma Gandhi

Like a body with many parts, connected and made to function in multiple diverse ways, yet as one, so is the mining industry – different facets, all in one body, each individual contributing towards the many successes achieved thus far.

To me, diversity and inclusion mean discerning beyond labels. Seeing, acknowledging, and valuing uniqueness and understanding that this is what makes us whole. I believe diversity and inclusion are not just cosmetics but form a significant foundation that maintains the integrity of an organization. In including all, we validate their voices, persons, even their skills and expertise. It means creating working environments that foster inclusion –an indispensable precondition that empowers us to unite and embrace how diverse we are while capitalizing on this pool of diversity to achieve individual growth and sustainable growth for the whole organization.

We are all different, not less, and are stronger when everyone is included.
