WOMEN IN MINING (WIM) is a nationwide organization composed of individuals employed in, associated with, or interested in the mining industry. The Organization is NOT limited to women only. Members include engineers, geologists, land men, secretaries, lobbyists, mine workers, educators, and concerned citizens. Many WIM members are business and civic leaders extending their influence and expertise into their local communities. Such varied backgrounds are extremely beneficial to the organization and members are encouraged to share this expertise and experience both formally and informally.
In addition to providing valuable educational benefits, the WIM organization offers members an opportunity to become acquainted and work with others involved in the mining industry and thereby acquire new personal and professional contacts.
