The Moa Nickel Site employs the only female excavator operators in the country’s mining industry!
Through its women-only training program, Sherritt’s partner, GNC, has trained and hired 12 female excavator operators, and one of them has worked in the plant since 1984.
This is the first such program of its kind in Cuba, and we are extremely proud of those involved with moving this initiative forward. It is programs like this that develop a robust pipeline of qualified female workers for jobs that were traditionally reserved for men, creating diverse employment options for women who earn an in-demand qualification.
The Moa Nickel Site continues to explore opportunities to hire more women for various positions.
