Now, more than ever, the mining industry needs to attract and retain capable, motivated people. We need to become more collaborative and innovative in how we approach the challenges that our industry faces. By attracting more women into the mining industry, the industry will increase its talent pool. By creating a culture in which both women and men can thrive, we will enrich our diversity of thought and help improve innovation. Canada’s mining and minerals industry is missing out on much of this country’s talent. Talented women in Canada sometimes work in the challenging and rewarding jobs in mining. Far more often, they choose to work in manufacturing, banking, public service, utilities, oil and gas, and other sectors. We cannot afford to miss out on half of the country’s
work capacity. To succeed in a complex and dynamic business environment, Canada’s mining industry needs to gain access to at least its fair share of talented women.
Her Mining Resources is a recruiting agency aimed at getting women increased opportunities in the mining industry. The idea is to get employers to come to us with their employment needs. Our solution will be to provide them with highly qualified educated women. Why are we doing this? There are very few women in the mining industry and we want to change this. Companies want more women in their organizations but can't go around posting that they just want to hire females. However, Her Mining Resources can help find the right candidates within our database. We will recruit from entry level positions to senior executives. Roles within this business include geologist, mining engineers, accountants, administrators, miners, drivers, drillers, technicians and all other support roles.
