In this webinar, the International Finance Corporation will present its recently released Unlocking Opportunities for Women and Business: A Toolkit of Actions and Strategies for Oil, Gas, and Mining Companies. Case studies pertaining to supplier development in oil, gas and mining will be shared along with insights on what it takes to successfully target women-owned businesses. 

BHP’s high-profile 50% target will then be explored through examining the business case for this initiative, along with the company’s approach. Examples will be drawn from the company’s Pampe Norte operation in Chile, where Mia Gous is the company’s first female general manager of a mine site. 


  1. What kinds of approaches can work to target and support female-owned businesses in the extractive industry supply chain? 
  2. How can local resistance to women’s increased participation as employees as entrepreneurs be addressed? 
  3. Does the challenge of increasing the female proportion of an extractive industry site’s workforce differ between an advanced country like Australia and in developing countries?
