Diwata's members are geologists, lawyers, mining engineers, communication officers, finance experts and other professionally trained women with an interest in national development and with the objective of providing a positive and productive platform for the promotion of responsible development of the Philippines' resources and promotion of initiatives to protect the land and its communities, particularly our indigenous people - their livelihood, health, education, and culture.

The idea to form an organization of "Women in Resource Development" had its roots in the Minerals Development Council (MDC), which Amb. Delia Domingo Albert chaired as then Presidential Adviser for Multilateral Cooperation and Development and concurrently as Special Envoy for Mining. The MDC was tasked with, among others, providing institutional support and serving as a monitoring body for the implementation of the Minerals Action Plan following the passage of the Mining Act of 1995. During the regular meetings of the MDC, the women representatives of the member agencies of government and private sector were instrumental in carrying out the clearly stated national policy of "revitalizing and promoting" the mining industry.
