Visibility for Equity

The Women in Mining Canada Trailblazer Awards Series recognizes women who embody the trailblazing spirit, which refers to the leadership mindset needed to make extraordinary personal strides to navigate the Canadian mining industry.

A diverse and inclusive mining industry makes us, and society, stronger. It drives our growth by attracting and retaining talented women and unlocking their potential.  By nominating a woman who has made an impact, you are:

  • Drawing attention to the importance women have in the mining industry
  • Encouraging young women entering the industry by presenting them with role models
  • Shaping engagement, retention and encouraging progress in our industry

Without visibility and awards highlighting the contributions women are making to the Canadian mining industry, women will remain under-represented.

You can be part of the solution. Consider the women you work with. Who brings fresh perspectives, inclusive thought-leadership, and is a valuable asset?  It’s likely you know at least three women who meet these criteria. 

By nominating one (or multiple women) you are supporting gender diversity within the mining industry while showing others you stand behind equity, diversity and inclusion.  Be a proud supporter.

Please note the deadline to nominate has passed. Applications will reopen in Fall 2022.
