Diversity and Inclusion Advisory Committee

The purpose of the Diversity and Inclusion Advisory Committee (DIAC) is to encourage diversity and inclusion within CIM and the mining industry at large. DIAC is working to meet this goal through objectives that include the encouragement of increased diversity and inclusion within the broader CIM organization, provide guidance to CIM executives and the Council on all things related to diversity and inclusion, and assist CIM in linking the messages around the business case to the industry through its publications, electronic communications and conference and outreach programs.
