WIM/WIN-SK Lunch & Learn Event: Me Too Mining Association’s DIGGER Program

Me Too Mining Association’s DIGGER Program; Active Bystander Intervention Strategies for Safe, Inclusive and Respectful Workplaces


Susan Lomas – Me Too Mining Association Founder


Susan LomasSusan has over 30 years of experience in the exploration and mining industry.  She spent the first 15 years of her career working in a mine and in exploration in Ontario, Quebec, NWT and Nunavut.  Susan has spent the last 15 years learning and honing her skills in 3D geology modelling and mineral resource estimation.  She is President of Lions Gate Geological Consulting Inc. (LGGC).  In February 2018, she founded the Me Too Mining Association to launch a conversation in the mining industry around sexual assault, sexual harassment, bullying, intimidation and discrimination. One of the tools MTMA has focussed on developing for the mining industry is bystander intervention strategies and has developed the DIGGER Program for workers to intervene safely when inappropriate workplace behaviours happen to them or in their presence.  The DIGGER acronym stands for Direct actions, Indirect actions, Get a co-worker, Get an authority, Engage with the target, Record and Report.

In 2018 Susan was included in the list 100 Inspirational Women in Mining by Women in Mining (UK).


“I was inspired to enter mining through my passion for geology and the geological sleuthing necessary to locate and define precious metal deposits.  This was always my focus.  The negative cultures and behaviours that sometimes result from mining being male-dominated impacted me deeply, but I never allowed any of it to stop me.”

Facilities for this event have kindly been provided by International Minerals Innovation Institute (IMII). Please see the map below which shows the building and highlighted visitor parking locations.
