Who do you imagine when you think of someone working at an iron ore mine? We’re willing to bet it isn’t Cornelia Holtzhausen.
Yet in the world of mining, the picture is starting to change.
More women are working in the industry and remaining with us for the long-term. Women like Cornelia who, as General Manager of our Thabazimbi mine in South Africa, is responsible for the site’s entire operations.
For us, having Cornelia’s expertise and experience at the very heart of our business is an essential part of our success. But, we also realise that her story remains the exception, not the rule, which is why we’re determined to increase the number of women working in different roles across our organisation and create a future built on talent sourced from every walk of life.
As Cornelia herself puts it: "Mining isn’t all about rocks and equipment. Really, it’s all about people."
