“We connect and inspire a diverse workforce to be fully engaged in the Saskatchewan mining and nuclear industries.”

Our organization and members are key players in the implementation of initiatives that improve gender equality, and foster the professional development of women in the mining and nuclear industries.

History and Strategic Direction

Women in Mining and Women in Nuclear Saskatchewan Inc. (WIM/WiN-SK) formed when the provincial chapters of Women in Mining and Women in Nuclear joined together.

Saskatchewan’s mineral resources create a strong link between mining and nuclear industries and bringing the two chapters together. Forming a stronger foundation for the organization to grow.

With our growth over the years, we have matured, we incorporated a non-profit entity, and the most recent change in our organizational structure to include a Board of Directors who is responsible for setting the strategic plan and our Executive Committees who is responsible for planning and executing the strategic plan set by the Board of Directors..

Annually, our Board of Directors meet to review and update our strategic plan. Our latest plan, vision and mission were developed and approved in late 2016, and will be reviewed and updated on an annual basis.  

Through our strategic plan, we support the goals of our parent organizations and we are very proud to share our journey on the path to developing a stronger strategic plan which will enable us to grow as an organization.
