Mineração por elas

We believe that gender diversity is essential for building a more inclusive and sustainable company. Learn about some of the women who help build the Vale we want to be.

The videos were produced during the pandemic and have complied with all the recommendations on prevention and social distancing. Almost all of the images were captured remotely and, were often, filmed by the characters themselves.

A project idealized and directed by women.

Other episodes

Women are conquering their space inside mining industry and from now on it will only increase.

We have set a goal to double the representation of women by 2030 and will work tirelessly to make them feel represented in a truly inclusive environment for all.

Show your skills and dedication, then we can compete with anyone. Working in a mining processing plant that is synonymous with a masculine world, makes me even more challenged to show that women can do it too!

I used to hear people saying, “it’s a man’s world”, but look at what women have achieved in Vale these days. Many women have proven to be the best in what they do - and I aspire to become like them one day. So ladies, be confident, speak boldly and be proactive. We can do it too!

Helayne Evangelista Serra Matins

Electrical-Electronics Technician


Working in mining is as challenging as it is pleasant, since we learn to deal with complex processes but are also faced with pre-judgments. All of this means that women have to prove our capacity to occupy our place. However, I see that Vale is a company that has sought to be the mirror of society with all its diversity and that makes me want to grow and develop my skills and competences here.

Shaft Services Worker


It was with the supportive and diverse culture at Vale that I was able to successfully chart a path forward for my own betterment, both at a personal and professional level. When I took on the role, I realized very quickly that “being the change I wished to see” would have to become far more than just one of my many utterances, but something I would have to follow every day.
