WIM Canada is spearheading an initiative to develop a National Action Plan that focuses on the attraction and retention of women in the skilled trades and executive level positions in the mining sector. Working collaboratively with the mining industry, this project will provide advice and develop guidance materials for companies to use to create a cultural shift in their organization and boost their overall Gender Intelligence Quotient (GIQ), working to eliminate the unconscious bias between genders and assist with change management within their organizations.
