Encouraging women back into mining at Cadia

Overview of Cadia's innovative project that's encouraging mothers to return to flexible work roles within the resources industry.

Some of the ways we are showing that we are serious about being inclusive are :

Community involvement

This is of huge importance to Newcrest and aligns with our values.

In 2018 we rolled out Trupla Man Trupla Meri (TMTM) in Lihir.

A program that aims to end domestic and sexual violence, and social issues such as drug and alcohol abuse, by
providing education, support and awareness to men, women and families while recognising the important role women play in their homes and communities, the mining industry and PNG economy. It encourages open and constructive conversations about violence, respect, trust, safety and security.

In August 2019 we issued new policies on sustainability, climate change, biodiversity, and water stewardship. These new policies have started to be embedded in our assets and operational planning cycles. We also achieved good progress on our various community initiatives such as;

  • Malaria Elimination program in Lihir(PNG),
  • Martu Aboriginal employment and training programs in Telfer(WA),
  • Primary and High School STEM programs across Melbourne(VIC),
  • Beyond Blue and Movember fundraising supporting mental health awareness in Cadia (NSW),
  • Joint projects with NGO in PNG and Gosowong (Indonesia) to provide support for local farmers and businesses to build long-lasting and sustainable economic opportunities.
