Women In Mining
The Women in Mining (WIM) network is an informal organization connecting women involved in or affiliated with the mining resources sector. The primary goal is to share knowledge, experiences and relationships that encourage growth and diversity. A secondary, but equally important goal is to encourage men and women from the mining industry to participate in the community.
To that end, WIM in Vancouver have:
- raised funds for Breast Cancer research by participating in the Weekend to End Breast Cancer, and the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run for the Cure
- supported microfinance in South Africa, through the Townships Project
- involved our members in Networking Evenings for University students
- promoted Career Prep for High School students
WIM, Vancouver Branch, holds informal “brown bag lunch” meetings on the second Thursday of each month often featuring a special speaker. WIM Vancouver events are featured on this page, the AME BC External Events Calendar, and also on the MABC website calendar.
The WIM International online community portal, dedicated to all women in the natural resources sectors, provides women with networking opportunities, a place to exchange views and find service providers, as well as much more. The portal focuses on two main pillars: information and business opportunities.
