Gemma White
Head of Digital
BHP

Whilst helping BHP navigate Queensland’s first-ever autonomous mining deployment, Gemma White saw first-hand how aligning people, technology and organisational factors was critical for successful digital transformation. Sparked with the passion to build this digital future, Gemma disrupted her decade-long mining career in corporate affairs and made a successful career leap into digital and data-driven technologies. Today as Head of Digital for BHP’s Queensland operations, Gemma is driving the company’s digital agenda by delivering industry-first machine learning, advanced analytics and award-winning innovation projects. A firm believer that diversity is the greatest driver of innovation, she proudly leads a gender-balanced team that celebrates the strength that comes from diversity. Her work creating entry pathways for women into the minerals industry, championing neurodiversity and fostering an inclusive team culture to drive exceptional commercial outcomes was recognised when she was named a finalist for Digital Transformation Leader and Diversity Employer of the Year in the Women in Digital Awards.
