In Episode 22, “Going Beyond”, Blenheim Partners‘ Gregory Robinson is delighted to speak to Stefanie Loader, current Non-Executive Director of St Barbara Ltd and Clean TeQ Ltd. Stefanie has previously been recognised as one of the Australian Financial Review 100 Women of influence and is a mining industry executive with broad international experience. She has worked in exploration, project evaluation and development, mining and corporate roles across seven countries and four continents. Stefanie was most recently Managing Director of Northparkes Copper and Gold Mine for CMOC International.

In an open and thoughtful discussion, Stefanie reveals her story, one of an individual who has constantly gone against the grain in several aspects of life and has profited from doing so. Dialling in from country Australia, we learn how Stefanie commenced her career as a geologist, worked internationally, became the first woman Chairman of the NSW Minerals Council and now whilst pursuing a board career is also focused on the economic development of regional Australia.

Lastly, we cover societal expectations for young women and the need for more than a shift in chat.
