Jamile Cruz is a Business Transformation Executive and the Founder of I&D 101, a consulting firm specialized in Inclusion & Diversity strategies. Having moved to Canada as an engineering graduate, she worked directly for leading organizations such as Hatch, Vale, and Accenture, and consulted for many mining clients over her 20-year career, learning what it takes to deliver successful capital projects and develop high performing teams.
Her current focus is on creating more inclusive organizations and improving the experience of under-represented groups in multiple industries, especially in mining. A noted public speaker, she has presented to a variety of audiences at industry events, including the 2019 Canada Energy and Mines Ministers’ Conference.
Always loved in transformation projects, not only in Canada, but also in her home country, Brazil, she has recently led the development of an Action Plan to advance the participation of women in the mining industry, together with IBRAM (Brazilian Mining Institute), the newly formed Women in Mining Brasil and many other partners, including the Canadian government.
Her strategic and practical approach to challenging issues is changing the ways organizations address Inclusion & Diversity, helping to make this important topic an integral part of their business strategy.
