VISION

HOW

Create a sustainable and scalable system to increase visibility, conversations and business opportunities amongst female entrepreneurs and mining companies.

Meet the Female Entrepreneurs Contributing to Innovation, Diversity and Sustainability.

INNOVATION

“We’re bringing adjacent technology and risk management approaches from other sectors into mining. There is a big and invisible corrosion risk in mining that we know causes fatal failures, production losses, and environmental releases. It’s an area where we can really make an impact.” 

Zoe Coull, Founder, ICE Dragon Corrosion 

SUSTAINABILITY

“So much more is expected of the Canadian mining industry. And rightly so. Sustainable development can no longer be transactional. It is still often treated as a ‘nice to have’ by way of philanthropy. Terms like CSR [corporate social responsibility] or SLO [social licence to operate] reflect and imply that social sustainability should remain on the periphery of operations, or one-offs without continued effort and management.” 

Sabrina Dias, Founder, SOOP Strategies  

 DIVERSITY 

Inclusion & Diversity (I&D) isn’t an organic change, and there isn’t a magic pill. The creation of an Inclusive Culture requires an all hands approach, with a clear story line that all employees can understand and that leaders are excited to own, and defined metrics placed to measure progress and allow for adjustments and corrections along the way. 

Jamile Cruz, Founder, I&D 101
