Congratulations to Barbara Caelles, WIMBC's Director and Founder, on being featured in CIM Magazine!

Over a decades-long career, Barbara Caelles advocated for gender equity and was instrumental in developing strong networks for women in British Columbia’s mining industry and we at WIMBC couldn't be more proud (and lucky!) to have Barbara as a key member of our leadership team. Without her wisdom and guidance, WIMBC would not be the same organization it is today.

CIM Magazine is featuring Barbara's journey as part of their We are Mining series. Read the whole interview here. 

Building Connections: Meaningful, Mindful, Indigenous Relations

Topic: This discussion will explore building meaningful, mindful and stronger connections with Indigenous communities. A thought-provoking discussion on shifting corporate culture, adopting Indigenous nomenclature and Indigenizing Organizations.

Bio: Solomon Reece-Brass (Co-Founder & CEO | Indige Corp.)

Solomon is Tsimshian and Saulteaux; he is the first in three generations to be raised by his own parents because of the Indian Act. His late father was Victor Herman Reece, of the Gitga’at First Nation, a master carver and story-teller and Sharon Jinkerson-Brass, of the Key First Nation, a medicine carrier, writer and filmmaker. Solomon was raised in a contemporary and traditional environment, learning to walk in two worlds. He has combined his experiences of being raised in a traditional home with his education in business to form a unique corporate vision. Solomon has always been politically active, working to bring forward Indigenous perspectives and issues in mainstream politics. Solomon has worked in both the public and private sector. Solomon is passionate advocate of Indigenous Sovereignty, Cultural Reclamation, Economic Development and Reconciliation.
