Consultation about women in mining

On the request of the Kautaapikkut Strategy Table and KRG Sustainable Employment Department, Saturviit is organizing a regional consultation on women in mining. The objective of this consultation is to better understand women’s concerns related to their working conditions in the mining sector, to discuss barriers they encounter and to pinpoint their needs in order to help increasing their presence and improving their working conditions in the mining sector. Two days of consultation are organized in each Nunavik community in January and February 2015. For that purpose, Saturviit is hiring a meeting organizer in each Nunavik community. The second step of the project will be to discuss a draft report with the first results of this consultation with the women during a one day session of Arnaliat Nipingit 2015 Women’s Conference.
