WIM Events

In response to the escalating threat of the COVID-19 virus and from recommendations by the Government of Canada we are cancelling all upcoming scheduled Women In Mining Winnipeg events in a collective effort to limit exposure. We will continue to monitor the situation and reschedule our speakers when it is safe to do so.

We are a small team of talented professionals with a wide range of skills and experience. We love what we do, and we do it with passion. We look forward to working with you.
