Sponsored by the CIM DIAC (Diversity & Inclusion Advisory Committee), the Diversity and Inclusion Medal recognizes exceptional contribution towards improving diversity and inclusion within the mining industry in Canada.
For clarity, within the concept of this award, the following definition of diversity and inclusion is used:
Diversity is any dimension that can be used to differentiate groups and people from one another including ethnicity, gender, age, national origin, disability, sexual orientation, education and religion.
Inclusion puts the concept and practice of diversity into action by creating an environment of involvement, respect, connection and support; allowing the richness of ideas, backgrounds and perspective to be harnessed to create value.
The Diversity & Inclusion recognizes the efforts of an individual who through his/her efforts has helped make the mining industry a more diverse and inclusive industry for all.
