Global Resource Providing information, networking and events for Women in PGMS

Welcome to WiPGMs

The network aims to provide a platform for women within the platinum group metals value chain. We bring 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 dependant 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. 

WiPGMs Events

WiPGM hosts a series of events during which we select matters key to the various sectors within the PGM industry. Our global events will take the form of meetings whether physical or virtual.
