Yes, we are in a global pandemic. We're being thrown into situations that we can't control. We're bombarded with news, emails and rapidly changing circumstances. Our brains are freaking out! And that is completely normal. I'll help you understand why your brain is freaking out and what you can do to manage your mind and bring emotional well-being back into your life.
Speaker: Jocelyn Peltier-Huntley
This presentation includes an overview of the current communication strategies related to gender equity in Canadian mining and the results from a nationwide survey which gathered perceptions from 540 current and former mining employees. Findings from the study indicate that individual mining companies are at different positions on their journey to create an industry that is ultimately reflective of the communities in which they operate. Suggestions for a multi-fronted communication strategy that encourages shifting mindsets and behaviours are discussed.
