Tiare and Fabiola are the first women in Austin Powder Chile and in Mina Uva and Jilguero operations to occupy these positions. Fabiola is also the first woman in Chile to be hired for this position in open-pit blasting operations.
We talked to them so they could tell us about their experience and what it’s like to be a role model for other women who are waiting for an opportunity like this in an environment with a male predominance.
Tiare is a mining engineer and is working for Austin Powder in the mining industry
“I feel very honored because by being the first woman to start working as a magazine worker, I am opening the way to a great change. This is already beginning to be noticed in the company’s efforts regarding the inclusion of women in their work areas.” I feel total and unconditional support from the company, my boss, and my colleagues as they are constantly teaching and motivating me. I feel that I can apply the knowledge that I acquired and complement it with the practice that I am doing in Austin. Lastly, I would like to thank you for the guidance that I constantly receive to face with confidence and firm knowledge this world of men that little by little is giving women the opportunity.’
Fabiola Lezcano is a mining technician and is currently studying the last subject of engineering in risk prevention and environmental management.
“I feel happy and proud to be the first female blast loader in Chile, grateful that they have given me this opportunity, which I will try to perform in the best possible way every day.
Inclusion and respect existed from the first moment we started work. My colleagues and leadership are very respectful. It is a very good team.”
