The Women in Mining Elk Valley Branch are inviting all to attend an information and networking evening at the Sparwood Seniors Drop In Centre, from 7:00 to 9:30 pm on Wednesday, October 23.

Whether you’ve been considering a role in mining or are looking to network with other women already working in the sector, this event is sure to be a great opportunity to find out more about the involvement of women in the mining operations in the Elk Valley. This no-charge evening is open to all ages and will include refreshments and desserts.

Women in Mining is an international organization that seeks to connect individuals and is open to anyone who is in any way involved in the mining sector. Current and prospective employees alike are encouraged to attend, as well as those with family members working in the industry or perhaps just looking to find out more about mining in the region.
