Diversity and inclusion is a topic that is heavily discussed that has garnered interest from the board level down to the employee level. DIAC co-chairs Theresa Nyabeze & Mohammed Ali have each worked in the mining industry for over 20 years and share their personal and professional perspectives on a topic that is no longer “why”, but has evolved to “how”. Concepts from developing policies down to setting targets have all been aspects many companies have looked at, but what does it really mean to create a workplace environment that is inclusive and embraces diversity?

The purpose of the Diversity and Inclusion Advisory Committee (DIAC) is to encourage diversity and inclusion within CIM and the mining industry at large. DIAC is working to meet this goal through objectives that include the encouragement of increased diversity and inclusion within the broader CIM organization, provide guidance to CIM executives and the Council on all things related to diversity and inclusion, and assist CIM in linking the messages around the business case to the industry through its publications, electronic communications and conference and outreach programs.
