Women in PGMs Networks

The Women in PGMs network brings women from across the various segments of the platinum group metals value chain together to discuss, debate, mentor and grow the industry and our roles within it.

Over the past 5 years many companies have started consciously working towards addressing the under representation of women within the various layers of management in their companies. Harnessing this positive momentum, we believe the timing is right to enable the equitable representation of women not only in company structures but also at industry bodies, events and conferences both in the audience and on the podium.

In 2019 Aimie Keeler started an initiative with the support of Anglo American to develop a network of women specialising in the Platinum Group Metal (PGM) value chain. Success in commodities is dependent on effective and efficient collaboration and development of the entire value chain. The network was set up and rolled out by 4 women who collectively have 80 years of work experience and 50 years within the PGM industry

Exciting mentoring opportunity with WiPGM

This year, we are delighted to offer the opportunity for our WiPGM members to take part in a WiPGMs-specific Mission Gender Equity mentoring programme with Moving Ahead, as part of the 30% Club campaign. Founded with the vision of Baroness Helena Morrisey and EY, Mission Gender Equity aims to build the pipelines and representation of women in leadership and board roles, and is a proven, practical, and powerful way to achieve greater gender balance at senior levels within organisations. Moving Ahead has extracted learnings from their existing programme and developed a bespoke solution for Women in PGMs.
