Jan 2024 – Round Table with Ruth Leland – A South African Women in PGMs Event

LOCATION: South Africa

A great start to 2024 with the SA Chapter of WiPGMs getting together to hear Ruth Leland, Johnson Matthey’s Refining Global Commercial Director and a WiPGMs board member discuss some of the trends in recycling and areas of interest to watch out for.

The intimate setting also provided a fantastic opportunity to re-engage with our colleagues in the industry and touch on some of the important issues on our minds as women in the industry, including how to make the PGM sector better understood for its relevance for the future world and enticing young minds to enter the industry.

It was a great way to start a year filled with some exciting events and of course the second year of our Mentoring Programme! We encourage you to sign up for this year’s programme which will kick-off in May 2024. Remember you can sign up as either a Mentor or Mentee and gain access to women in the industry from across the globe.
