BOARD OF DIRECTORS

Women have participated as leaders, trailblazers, mentors and community champions of Yukon’s mineral industry for more than a 100 years, beginning with Canadian Mining Hall of Fame inductee Kate Carmack Shaaw Tláa in 1896 and the discovery of gold that kicked off one the most famous global gold rushes.

The Board of Yukon Women in Mining is proud to build on this foundation and is dedicated to ensuring Yukon continues to be a leader nationally and globally by enhancing our diversity and inclusion of women, and under-represented groups, within our sector – to support the success, health and prosperity of YukonWIM members, our Industry and our communities.
