VANCOUVER, BC, March 25, 2022 /CNW/ - Great Panther Mining Limited (TSX: GPR) (NYSE-A: GPL) ("Great Panther" or the "Company"), a growth-oriented precious metals producer focused on the Americas, is pleased to announce it 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," stated Alan Hair, Great Panther's Chair and Interim CEO. "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. 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. 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. For the 2022 ranking, Report on Business conducted a journalistic analysis of nearly 500 large publicly traded Canadian companies. In total, 74 companies earned the 2022 Women Lead Here seal, with a combined average of 46% of executive roles held by female-identifying individuals.
