Great Panther Mining recognized for executive gender diversity

Great Panther Mining (TSX: GPR) (NYSE-A: GPL) has been recognized in The Globe and Mail’s 2022 Report on Business Women Lead Here list. This annual editorial benchmark identifies best-in-class executive gender diversity in corporate Canada.

“We are proud of this achievement and recognition by The Globe and Mail as we strive to support diversity, including gender diversity across the organization,” Alan Hair, Great Panther’s Chair and Interim CEO said in a media statement.

“At Great Panther we support several initiatives focused on achieving diversity not only within the leadership team and Board of Directors, of which 50% and 43%, respectively, are women, but also at each one of our sites,” Hair said.

“We are committed to achieving gender parity, ensuring that salary compensation is valued by position with no difference between genders, and at Tucano we have set a target to achieve 25% female representation in the workforce by 2023,” he said. “We are committed to these goals because we believe that diversity within our Company provides the perspectives, experiences and expertise needed to deliver the best results for our stakeholders.”

Established in 2020 by Report on Business magazine, the Women Lead Here initiative highlights Canadian corporations that have made tangible, systemic, organizational progress related to executive gender parity and have the highest degree of gender diversity among executive ranks.
