New Podcast for International Women's Day

In the second of LBMA's Compliance Cosy Chat podcast series, and in honour of International Women's Day, we bring you a very special episode.

Episode 2 - Empowering Women in Metals: Insights and Inspirations on International Women's Day

In an era of unprecedented social awareness and progress, it's not merely about celebrating women; it's about leveraging such celebrations to ignite crucial conversations. The realm of metals and mining, long dominated by men, is undergoing a significant transformation as more women step into leadership roles. However, while strides have been made, the journey towards gender equity in this sector is far from over.
