The next Elk Valley Women in Mining event is a speed networking opportunity to meet others in the industry.

Women in Mining is an international networking organization for women who are already working in any part of the mining industry or would like to work in mining in future.

The Elk Valley group meets regularly for socials, presentation and skills-building workshops and welcomes new members.

Elk Valley branch Vice President Anne Keery said the idea for the event came about after a number of members asked for the opportunity to get to know other women who work in different parts of the industry, and discuss issues that affect the whole group.

She added: “This meet and mingle event will allow you to bond over drinks and dinner, with a structured format where you will meet and chat with 11 new people before open discussions over dinner.

The meet and mingle takes place at 5.30 p.m. on Tuesday, May 7 at Coal Miner’s Diner, 104 Centennial Square, Sparwood.

The only cost is to buy your own dinner and drinks but the event is limited to 24 people, so please RSVP as soon as possible. Contact details are available at www.elkvalleywim.com
