The British non-profit organisation, Women in Mining UK (WIM) recently published its global 2016 rating for the Top 100 Inspirational Women in Mining. Founded in 2006, the goal of WIM is to assist businesses and governments in attracting, retaining and promoting female professionals to various areas of mining.

“A person who wants to achieve something in his or her life has to be inspirational – it is right for mining, audit, any other business or profession, and life in general. Energy, enthusiasm and inspiration drive individuals to success, and help leaders to make their teams successful.”

Natalia Golovkina, Partner in the Audit Department of Deloitte CIS, was recognised as one of the Top 100 Inspirational Women in Mining in 2016. Natalia's vast experience in auditing energy and mining enterprises, managing major audit projects for the leading global and Russian players, her proactive approach to every engagement, vigour and enthusiasm all contributed to her well-deserved position in the rating.
