Achieving gender equality
Women are provided with opportunities to advance their careers through secondments, mentorship programmes, middle management to executive development programmes, courses through local and international educational institutions, and participation on external boards outside of AngloGold Ashanti.
The human resources management team reports to the Social Ethics and Sustainability subcommittee on the representation of women at every level, and has set targets beyond what is legislated in our areas of operation. A number of initiatives are in place to ensure that these targets are met.
As at August 2020, AngloGold Ashanti’s global gender split was 87% male and 13% female. Our board representation is 44% female and our Executive Committee is 33% female.
