WIM Groups Hub

One of the reasons International Women in Mining was established was to reach out and connect with women working in the mining industry across the globe. We are now connected with over 50 independent Women in Mining (WiM) associations, based in every continent – relationships we have nurtured over many years.

Because of our extensive experience building a women’s network, together with our social media outreach, we are able to support WiM groups in the following ways:

  • Work together on projects and activities
  • Publish their newsletters and press releases on our website, and promote their activities on our social media feeds
  • Publish their activities in our monthly newsletter
  • Publish their contact details and a group description in our global WiM groups directory
  • Add their events to our global WiM calendar
  • Introduce them to other WiM groups
  • Introduce potential members to them
  • Offer other advice if requested

We also help new WiM groups become established. Click on advice to see what we offer to new WiM groups.

Women in Mining Nigeria
Women in Mining, Nigeria (WIMIN) is a not-for-profit non-governmental organization(NGO) borne out of the necessity of ensuring that women in the mining sector are adequately protected in a system where the capital outlay on investment is capital intensive and knowledge required is challenging. We started as a small Women In Mining chapter in Nigeria, and now we have grown to a membership of well over 1,500 persons all engaged in mining related activities which ranges from Gemstone collection and trading, to financing gemstone collections, working on metallic ores, tin sheds or as professionals (geologist, mining engineers).
The background of members is diverse including lawyers, bankers, educationists involved in various capacities in mining and supporting our cause in Nigeria. Nigeria is a major player in the Oil & Gas industry and over time has vested all its energy to focus on only this industry. Nigeria is a country so rich in other natural resources but it is yet to fully actualize the development of mining other minerals because of the abundance of crude oil.

Greater Vancouver Mining Women’s Association
The Greater Vancouver Mining Women’s Association was formed in 1975 as a fellowship organization for spouses of people connected with the mining industry. By 1977 it had evolved into a charitable organization with a mandate to raise public awareness of mining through education. Since then, the Greater Vancouver Mining Women’s Association (GVMWA) has operated as a non-profit organization registered under the Societies Act of British Columbia. It brings women together who are involved with the mining industry, either directly or indirectly, and from both industry and supply sectors. The members have raised a considerable amount of money over the years through craft fairs, fashion shows, raffles, publishing cook books and through many other projects. The funds raised have allowed the GVMWA to finance scholarships at the University of British Columbia, Simon Fraser University and the British Columbia Institute of Technology to assist women in mining related studies.
