Student Branches

At WIMC we strongly believe that the best way to increase women’s footprint in the industry is to encourage them to enter the industry at the beginning of their careers, before they settle down in another industry. Through an activities-based strategy hosting a variety of events, the student chapters will bring the mining and minerals industry and all its facets to the university community. The chapters help women studying at their school understand the intricacies of the mining and minerals industry as well as build a network of information available to all those interested.
