New Research from ASI and IWiM: Can a mining law unlock the potential of women?

We are delighted to announce the launch of our latest research paper ‘Women in Mining, Can a mining law unlock the potential of women?

As part of a collaborative project, Adam Smith International (ASI) and International Women in Mining (IWiM) interviewed over 40 people working in the mining sector including sector experts, miners and government officials to understand whether introducing a specific gender focused law can increase the participation and empowerment of women.

Through our analysis we identify five enabling factors and fifteen actionable recommendations targeted at policymakers, development partners, and industry players seeking to unlock the potential of women working in mining.  Focusing on Malawi and Sierra Leone as case studies, our recommendations reflect the need to further develop a fully costed business case to promote women working in the sector, and mainstream mining in broader gender and development initiatives.

We welcome you to share the paper across your professional networks and complete a two minute online survey to capture any feedback you may have. Your responses will feed into discussions on the recommendations planned for later in the year – so watch this space.


Kind Regards,

Adam Smith International and International Women in Mining
