As a Geoscience consulting company founded by two women, Ronacher McKenzie Geoscience is passionate about increasing the gender balance in geosciences.
On April 20th, 2017, I was honoured to speak to the University of Toronto Earth Science graduating class at the "Earth Ring" ceremony.
The Earth Science Ring Ceremony was started at the University of Alberta in 1975, and has been adopted by other academic instituations across Canada. It's a ritual of welcome into the profession for newly qualified geologists and geophysicists. Each graduating student is presented with a ring, marked with the cossed hammer of geology and with the seismic trace of geophysics. It symbolizes the commitment and responsibility that comes with the geoscience profession.
Ronacher McKenzie Geoscience attended the Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada’s (PDAC) 2017 Convention, March 5 to 8, at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. The convention is regarded as the premier international event for the mineral industry, and in recent years attracted attendees from 125 countries. It connects the global mining community for networking, investment opportunities, technical sessions, and short courses.
