Trailblazer Awards

Recognize a woman in the Canadian mining industry today

Without visibility and awards highlighting the contributions women are making to this industry, females will remain under-represented. The sector will lag in its ability to reach its potential. 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.

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

Nominations are now open!

 The deadline is January 21st, 2022 at 11:59 PM ET.
