MTMA had a great time at AMEBC RoundUp Conference 2019 in January and would like to thank everyone who stopped by the booth and gave us such positive feedback!
We participated in a Women at RoundUp event that was hosted at the Elephant and Castle Pub in Vancouver on Jan 29 with MTMA, Women Geoscientists Canada (WGC), and Women in Male Dominated Industries (WIMDI). We had a good turnout of women and men in the mining and mineral exploration industries. We broke up into small groups so we could have an opportunity to have discussions around the challenges faced by workers in these industries and how we can grow safe and respectful workplaces.
On the last two days of the conference, MTMA had a booth where we had banners that explained the goals of MTMA and a table display that promoted our Active Bystander Pledge. We had 72 people come by and take the pledge by signing our table runner. We also handed out information on Bystander Intervention strategies to empower everyone in mining to action when inappropriate behaviour happens to them or in their presence.
We really enjoyed the opportunity to connect with conference attendees and let industry companies and workers know what our goals are and how we hope to accomplish them.
MTMA is travelling to Toronto in March for PDAC 2019 at booth # 6428 in the Trade Show North Area. Drop by our booth and say hello and take the Active Bystander Pledge by signing our table runner.
