Mentoring at the IPAA: Meet Gemma Friedberg
Sometimes it takes someone outside of your immediate circle to show you what you need at a certain point in time. In Gemma Friedberg’s case, she assumed that joining the IPAA mentoring program would just be a step in preparing her to move up in her career, as well as a chance to network. What she didn’t anticipate was that on top of that, she would gain was a renewed perspective on dealing with uncertainty and growing resilience, and the confidence to be just that little bit braver in her endeavours.
Mentoring at WASMA: Meet Renee Gaspar and Drew Noble
As a young, female engineer in the largely male-dominated mining industry, Renee Gaspar knew that her experience would hold some unique challenges.
In this episode, Renee shares how drawing from her mentor Drew Noble’s extensive experience has opened her up to new ideas and perspectives that otherwise would have been difficult to find given the lack of female leadership in the industry.
