The Americas Powerhouse Luncheon: Meet the International Trailblazers Challenging the Status Quo

MC: Marcia MacMillan, Reporter, CTV News
Panel Moderator: Mona Ghiami, Chief Inclusion Officer, PwC Canada
Panelists: TBC


What do a Canadian Treasure Hunter, an Argentine Winemaker, a Mexican Environmentalist and a Peruvian Inca all have in common? A trailblazing spirit that has driven them to defy established norms and challenge the status-quo of their distinct cultural realities to rise to top leadership positions.

Taking place during the PDAC 2019 Convention, the World's Premier Mineral Exploration and Mining Convention where 25,000 global professionals meet in Toronto and in celebration of International Women’s Day, the Women of Influence Luncheon Series and Women Who Rock are partnering to shine a spotlight on The Americas Diversity story, by sharing the unique perspectives of these four groundbreaking leaders.

In a compelling conversation moderated by PWC's Chief Inclusion Officer, the panel will inspire us with their fearless stories, ignite curiosity as to how they turned their challenges into innovative opportunities, and share tangible insights on:

  • How cultural differences in each country are impacting and transforming women’s careers.
  • What it takes to rise to leadership if the culture is not designed to support your advancement.
  • How various Latin American countries measure on gender equity in the workforce.
  • How governments can create an ecosystem that supports the next generation of female leaders and brings diversity of thought to the world.

  • Join us for this incredible opportunity to immerse yourself in cultural exchange, become an active participant in the global gender equity dialogue, and discover how cultural context shapes our career paths and experiences.

    Additional Details

    Join Women of Influence and Presenting Sponsor Scotiabank as we showcase North America’s most accomplished and influential women who share their stories of professional success and personal triumph on their rise to the top. Since 1994, the series has shared the dreams, accomplishments and challenges of high profile women in business, government, sciences and the arts. Our highly regarded speakers provide proven advice and inspiration in an environment that promotes networking, learning and growing. This flagship event series is hosted in Toronto and Calgary and inspires over 5,000+ aspiring women leaders each year.

    Since 2014, WWR has grown into a well-known and respected organization, within the mining industry, with more than 800 active and diverse followers in Canada. A team of eight volunteers, passionate about bringing positive change to mining, wholeheartedly committed to deliver unique events and programs igniting curiosity and attracting bright minds to the sector.

    Our strategy is built on the findings of the Mining Industry Human Resource Council Gender Survey and has three pillars.

    1. Connect
    Through the success of our Auction for Action program, now in year five, we have created mentorship relationships by connecting aspiring women to mining leaders. Among the mentees are women completing graduate studies and also in the early stages of their careers in geology, engineering, law and business disciplines. Women mentees have the potential to take their careers to the next level through a one-on-one mentorship meeting with a mining leader.

    2. Communicate
    We take an active role in generating and promoting positive stories about the sector both inside and outside of the mining community. All with the goal to improve the industry’s image and to ignite curiosity. We strive to impress and engage in all conversations about career opportunities in mining while attracting more women to the industry’s ranks.

    3. Collaborate
    With a knack for developing out of the box ideas and events, we bring diverse groups with common goals together. In fact, we have become the go-to liaison between stakeholders, addressing common challenges and sharing success stories.
