Case Study

Transforming DEI Culture in the Australian Mining Industry with Emberin

Client: A leading Australian mining company facing significant challenges in diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) within a traditionally male-dominated industry.


The mining company recognised the need to shift from a compliance-driven approach to diversity to cultivating an inclusive culture that leverages diversity as a strategic advantage. Despite previous efforts, the organisation struggled with:

  • Limited engagement and commitment from senior leadership on DEI initiatives.
  • A significant gender imbalance across all levels of the organisation.
  • A lack of a unified DEI strategy that aligns with business objectives and the bottom line.
  • Low engagement scores, high bullying and harassment and high turnover.

Emberin, led by Maureen Frank, embarked on a comprehensive DEI Executive Briefing & Health Check to diagnose the root causes of the company’s DEI challenges and kick-start a transformative journey towards inclusivity. The approach encompassed:

  • An initial DEI consultation with the executive team to understand the current state of DEI within the company.
  • An Inclusive Culture Executive Briefing is designed to energise senior leaders about the benefits of a strategic, inclusive culture.
  • Surveys and discussions with leaders and stakeholders to capture diverse perspectives and identify specific DEI challenges.

Based on the insights gathered, Emberin developed a tailored DEI roadmap for the mining company, which included:

  • Customised DEI training and workshops for leaders and employees at all levels to foster inclusive behaviours and practices.
  • Implementation of a mentorship program aimed at supporting underrepresented groups within the organisation.
  • Development of clear DEI goals and metrics aligned with the company’s strategic objectives, including initiatives to address gender imbalance and enhance cultural diversity.

The engagement with Emberin marked a pivotal shift in the company’s DEI journey. Leaders who were once sceptical about the value of DEI initiatives became vocal champions of inclusivity, inspired by the practical and strategic insights provided by Maureen Frank during the executive briefing. Employees across the organisation began to see tangible changes in the company’s culture, reflected in more open conversations around DEI and greater participation in DEI-related activities.


Within 12 months of partnering with Emberin, the mining company reported significant progress towards its DEI goals:

  1. A 25% increase in female representation in leadership positions and a more diverse talent pipeline.
  2. Improved employee engagement scores (+8% and an increase in gender inclusion metrics), with a marked increase in positive sentiment around inclusivity and belonging.
  3. Enhanced innovation and collaboration, attributed to the diversity of thoughts and perspectives fostered by the new inclusive culture.
  4. Reduced turnover
  5. Recognition within the industry for the company’s commitment to DEI, attracting top talent, and strengthening its reputation as an employer of choice.
