AWIMA's Continental Network of Women

Empowering Africa's Extractive Sector

AWIMA is a network of African Women in Mining, Oil and Gas National Organisations and Associations. This network of organisations and associations from the Southern, Central, Western, Eastern, and Northern regions of Africa advocates for the participation, representation, leadership, and inclusive empowerment of women in the extractive sector in Africa.

We serve as a representative body for women throughout the extractive industries, including Large-Scale Mining, Artisanal and Small-Scale Mining, oil and gas exploration, mining education, community engagement, and entrepreneurial ventures, ensuring their voices are heard and their contributions are recognised.
