There is nothing more liberating than being who you are, without fearing prejudice, including at your
workplace. And, aiming to build an increasingly welcoming Vale, we have invested in initiatives that
boost diversity in all areas, including what concerns to people from the LGBTQIA+ community.

From offices to operations, we have been working on actions that not only support, but also encourage
our team to be proud of their individualities. One of the ways we've found to reinforce this commitment
is the web series Mining By Women, which tells stories about women who are making history at Vale.
In the episode "LGBTQIA+ Women" we feature employees Kelly Silva, Camila Szerman and Rosileide Silva.
