Personality of the Week:Zenzi Awases

Zenzi Awases is the President of the Women in Mining Association of Namibia. 

A geologist with 15 years of experience exploring and mining a paleo-placer diamond deposit along the southwestern coast of Namibia, Awases entered the mining industry almost by accident, having dreamed of being a lawyer. 

Since then, she has gone from strength to strength, becoming a vocal leader, mentor and advocate for gender diversity in mining.

Awases was named founding president of the Women in Mining Association of Namibia (WiMAN) in April 2017, and in November 2019, was elected to the Board of the Association of Women in Mining Africa (AWIMA), as the representative for Southern Africa.
