U of T WIM: Panel Discussion Night

February 7 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Mining is inherently a risky business, closely following the volatility and associated cyclicity of the commodity market. The mining industry must continuously adapt and implement new technologies and practices, and as such, innovation and resilience are key.
Women in Mining University of Toronto is excited to announce our upcoming panel discussion, entitled: ‘Past, Present, and Future: Navigating Challenges and Changes in the Dynamic Mining Industry.” This panel discussion will be held in the Debates Room, on the second floor of Hart House, University of Toronto, on February 7, 2018, at 5:00pm.

Students, new graduates, established industry professionals, and those involved in auxiliary industries are all influenced by the inherent challenges mining presents, and thus must all be involved in the drive towards continual improvement. This panel aims to explore:

  • the experiences of our panelists in dealing with the unpredictable nature of the industry
  • how they have personally found success
  • where and how they feel the mining industry has room to improve and grow
  • the vision that the industry is moving towards in the future
