19 July – Women in Mining Breakfast
A new addition to the Mine Entra event diary, this forum seeks to highlight key successes achieved so far in empowering women in the mining sector while simultaneously celebrating the women who are contributing positively towards a more productive and innovative mining industry. The breakfast meeting will run under the theme, “Exploring Linkages in the Mining Value Chain: Opportunities for Women.”
19 July – Young Professionals Forum
The inaugural Mine Entra Young Professionals Forum will run under the theme, “Opportunities for Young Professionals in the Mining Value Chain. Its aim is to provide the young professionals of the minerals industry with an opportunity to share their experiences and ideas, forge ties with peers and provide exposure necessary for career advancement. Our hope is that it will contribute to the preparation of today’s young professionals for the leadership role they will soon have to assume to address the current and future challenges in the minerals industry.
