Experienced partnering with Government, Private Sector, and Non-Profits, she connects the dots and develops people-centric solutions to the most pressing ESG issues facing the industry today.

**This event will be in both French and English

Mining organizations are expanding their equity, diversity and inclusion efforts. In some cases, the industry has attempted to tackle this issue by attracting women from collegial organizations. This is not necessarily a holistic or sustainable approach and will not increase equity across the sector. As well these mandates typically apply to corporate positions and do not address the lack of female representation in the mining supply chain.

Artemis Project offers an alternative approach to this industry challenge. Through our gender-responsive procurement programs, we act as a vehicle for mining organizations to fortify their supply chains in an aggregated fashion with a vetted pool of female entrepreneurs providing a wide range of professional services and products from mine to market.
