Why we're here
We were founded to create a stronger connection with indigenous women in this traditionally male, non-indigenous dominated sector.
Our history and our present experience with the Mining and Resource sector, as indigenous people, has always been and is troubled. Our history since settlement will always remain as a scar on our generations to come, however, our strive to survive, as the present generation to be stronger and overcome entrenched trauma, begins with daily conversations.
IWIMRA is focused on creating a national framework that will support indigenous women who are currently participating and aspiring to grow within this sector. To reach our end goal, which is to establish positive role models within our industry, at decision making levels, we must start with positive daily conversations. Our thoughts become our words and our words become our actions. This is our guiding principle.
