Women in Mining Canada (WIMC) launched the National Action Plan (NAP) in January this year, laying out the challenge to industry to take meaningful efforts to actively include women in the workplace and achieve new business benefits. The NAP was supported by Status Women Canada with the insights of leading mining organizations that formed a gender advisory committee to provide valuable industry guidance and leadership to the project of diversity and inclusion.
The International Women in Resources Mentoring Programme (IWRMP) was formed by an international steering committee as a natural sequel to the NAP, with the aim to empower and promote the career prospects of women working in the international resources industry by developing productive mentoring partnerships to assist in creating a more diverse and gender progressive industry. IWRMP is launching the first international mentoring programme at the PDAC in 2018.
IWRMP is seeking international industry mentors for our programme, and will provide interested mentors in the coming weeks with a mentor application that will identify strengths, area of expertise and industry experience to match with mentees.
The programme is fully outlined on the website – www.iwrmp.com and the below brochure.
