Newmont's Business Resource Group gives to a Great Cause
At Newmont’s Ahafo mine in Ghana, the Women’s Consultative Committee (WCC) provides financial assistance to local female entrepreneurs through a revolving fund established to provide micro loans and credit to women with small-scale business ventures.
Business resource groups (BRGs) were introduced at Newmont in 2014. A Business Resource Group (also known as an Affinity Group or Employee Resource Group) is a company-sanctioned organization of employees with a common background, set of interests and/or goals. Each BRG welcomes all employees. Since 2014, 17 BRGs have been established in our operating regions and at the corporate office. Newmont recognizes BRGs as critical partners for ensuring that everyone’s voice is heard and diversity of thought is celebrated and leveraged with participation open to all employees.
Sustainability is one of Newmont’s core values, and this commits us to serve as a catalyst for local economic development through transparent and respectful stakeholder engagement and as responsible stewards of the environment. In Denver, Newmont’s Socially and Environmentally Responsible Volunteer Employees (S.E.R.V.E.) committee is one of the ways that we’re working to honor that commitment.
