‘I Wanna Be Mentored’ Sponsored Students

For the Fifth Annual ‘Auction for Action’ in Vancouver, we wanted to do something a little different.  For past events, we have hosted the ‘I Wanna Be Mentored’ competition, that provided sponsored bids for qualifying female professionals and students, who wish to pursue career opportunities in Canadian mining. 

This year, we were provided with recommendations directly from post-secondary institutions and professors, to select five accomplished young women who would benefit from the executive mentoring opportunity.

Women Who Rock is committed to providing ongoing professional development and career opportunities for women in mining. We are pleased to announce that the following five students will be sponsored at the Fifth Annual Auction for Action, in Vancouver British Columbia.  

Emma D’Alessandro

Nadine Te

Raewyn Danvers

Sarah Caven, MBA

Emma Dodyk

We would like to congratulate each sponsored professional and student, and look forward to their participation in the Auction for Action, on May 7th, 2018.  These students will be sponsored in their bid to win valuable career mentoring time with one of our seven distinguished executives from the Canadian mining industry, and insights into career development. 

We would also like to thank our sponsors and media partners, for their support to help us make this opportunity possible.
