“I believe that we can transform the mining industry with unconventional and dynamic partnerships to dramatically accelerate innovation objectives, and foster a greater connection with the next generation of mining. What’s best today can lead to dead ends, the best paths are new and untried.”




Lorelei Ratushniak, Founder & CEO at EOD Inc.


“The Mining Industry needs to be more transparent about their sustainability practices. A systematic approach ensures that strategy and values are addressed through meaningful actions, and not by the reporting standard of the day.”




Ielca Torok, CEO, Minerva Solutions Inc.


“The business case for gender equity and diversity has been made repeatedly and irrefutably by now.  The mining industry has the opportunity to accelerate progress on all indicators and to truly lead and innovate by inviting, including and equipping women to lead in all functional areas of the business. This is perhaps the biggest lever for change we have and the companies that embrace it will quickly leave the rest behind.”

Belinda Clemmensen, Founder, The Women’s Leadership Intensive
