Women in mining and the gender pay gap

AusIMM’s Women in Mining Survey 2020 was released last month, giving a snapshot of women employed in the mining industry. The study looked at everything from participation levels to pay rates so we thought it was a good time for us to dive back into the thorny issue of the gender pay gap in mining.

Do you think the mining company you work for is doing enough to close the gender and equality pay gap?
Do you think men are paid more than women in your mining workplace for doing the same or similar work?
What do you think the gap looks like?
What would you like to see your mining company do to address the gender pay gap?

Thanks so much for taking part in this Mining People Polling/Media Centre poll. We’ll publish the results on our website next month. You can see the results of some of our other recent polls below!
