Ok Tedi promotes three women into key roles


OK Tedi Mining Limited has appointed three women to managerial roles.
They are Hillary Turnamur as manager Kiunga operations, Beverley Pasen as manager, information and communications technology, and Chantel Christensen as manager contracts and compliance.
Managing director and chief executive Peter Graham said it was particularly pleasing to see women progressing into managerial roles based on merit, which reflected Ok Tedi’s commitment to being an equal opportunity employer.
“These three new managers have each demonstrated strong leadership and the capacity to take on expanded roles and we congratulate them,” Graham said.
He said Ok Tedi had recently established a women’s network to identify development pathways and remove impediments to the progression for female employees, encourage mentorship and training for female employees and identify ways to attract and retain female employees.
“We hope to see the representation of women in management and in non-traditional mining roles continue to increase,” Graham said.
