MERUANE, Paulina Irene Salinas  e  CHAU, Camila Fernanda Cordero. TRANSFORMING LEADERSHIP IN MINING: STRATEGIC MANAGEMENT FOR INCORPORATING WOMEN INTO THE INDUSTRY. Innovar [online]. 2016, vol.26, n.61, pp.119-130. ISSN 0121-5051.  http://dx.doi.org/10.15446/innovar.v26n61.57170.

A low participation of women in the mining industry is a prevailing issue around the world. In Chile, despite higher wages, technological level and the projected deficit of human capital in the sector, women represent 4.2% in operational areas. Therefore, the aim of this paper is to analyze the role of mining industry managers to reverse this condition.

By means of a case study in Compañía Minera Esperanza, part of the group Antofagasta minerals, located in northern Chile, nine (9) heads of operational areas were in-depth interviewed. Results reported the need of executing a transformational leadership with a gender perspective and thus a more flexible human resource management, as well as facilitating the adaptation and projection of women, promoting managerial positions for women and assigning heads of areas with responsibilities to a more symmetrical management. These findings are central to strategic management in an industry experiencing high demand and intense dynamism at international level.
