    I am a learning professional and work with different industries. Currently, my focus is on designing career profiles for people who work in the mining industry. I can’t tell you how much I have learned about the industry and how much respect I have for them and especially for women working in the industry. I think the BC Mining Week event and especially the Community Fair would be such a great platform to understand the importance of mining and help our kids learn more about this industry!

    PS can you give a few more spaces after the publish button on the mobile site? It disappears at the bottom and you have to try and drag up and quickly tap the publish button before it slides too far down to tap.
