Ms Monica Moretto, Director, CSR and Sustainability for Pan American Silver Corp, is an experienced CSR and Corporate Affairs professional with more than 16 years experience in communications and social responsibility. Ms Moretto holds a BA in Communications from Argentina and has been employed by Pan American Silver Corp (“PAS”) for the past 10 years, specializing in stakeholder engagement. During her tenure with PAS Monica recognized a need for more engagement in CSR and therefore created and developed a CSR department for this organization that has now become a model for other agencies to follow. In addition to developing this department, Monica regularly travels to remote Indigenous mining communities throughout Latin and South America developing relationships with workers and their families and advocating their concerns to local governments, industry leaders and international NGO’s. Monica is a much sought after speaker at venues such as a PDAC and the World Bank Ventures Program on the role of CSR in modern corporations. As a result of first-hand experience with local communities Monica has developed a passion for championing women’s rights, not only abroad but in corporate North America as well.
