There’s so much to explore at the university. Have you heard about U of T Mississauga’s unique collection of 14,000+ games? Or the new, open-air academic resource quad that’s set to launch at U of T Scarborough, complete with shade sails, a fully equipped outdoor stage, accessible seating, and permaculture gardens? Have you heard about our 90+ mentorship programs, 10+ startup accelerators, or U of T St. George’s plans for a sparkling new Centre for Cultures, Civilizations, and Cities?

You can, very soon.

Starring a crackerjack cast of staff, students, and faculty from three world-class campuses, Fall Campus Week is your best chance to sample everything on tap at Canada’s #1 university. While we can’t open our doors to guests in person this year, we also can’t wait to host you online, answer your questions, and learn more about your future plans. So, let’s get you off to a great start.

CIM presents: Write Well and Prosper in the Mining Industry
Oct 27 @ 3:30 pm – 5:00 pm

Meeting Date and Time: Wednesday, October 27, 2021 at 3:30 pm ET

Jane Werniuk 

Geologist, Technical Writer / Editor, Journalist 

Write Well and Prosper in the Mining Industry

CIM’s Management and Economics Society invites you, its members and friends, to attend the first Discussion Group meeting of the 2021/22 season. This virtual session comprises a presentation followed by a questions and answers component.

Abstract: Clear and accurate communications are necessary to the successful governance of mining and exploration companies. This presentation demonstrates the importance of clear, transparent technical writing that is crisp and understandable to an audience that includes the average investor and stakeholder. This applies to all types of public disclosures such as news releases, websites, and NI 43-101 technical reports. Technical writing requires the correct use of technical terms, and often the addition of well-produced graphics and a glossary. Today’s technical information includes environmental and social issues along with purely technical data. Successful technical writing is a team sport, with input and review by staff from head office and work sites. Each person should be able to edit (improve the readability of) their own and each other’s language. The presentation is aimed at people from various fields who are new to the mining and exploration industry, or new to technical writing.

BIO: Jane Werniuk is a recently retired geologist, technical writer/editor and journalist. She most recently worked as a senior geologist, technical reporting at Agnico Eagle Mines Limited in the Toronto head office from 2009 to 2020, combining her geological background and editing skills to help prepare technical reports, website information, regulatory documents and news releases.

She studied geology at Queen’s University (BSc 1977) and Carleton University (MSc 1982). Her field work spanned South Africa, Ontario, the Northwest Territories, Arizona and the Yukon from 1975 to 1981, exploring for uranium and base metals as well as mapping for the federal Canadian and Ontario governments. The immediate result of an encounter with a bear in the Yukon was that she then embarked on a career in scientific editing and writing, starting with the Newfoundland Mines Branch (1982-84) followed by a textbook publisher (1984-85), and then as assistant editor and then editor of Canadian Mining Journal (1986-1990, 1997-2008) in Toronto. The “gap” from full-time work was spent raising two children as well as running Werniuk Information Services, a writing and editing consulting firm, in partnership with her husband George Werniuk. Mineral-industry clients included the Geological Association of Canada and the Ontario Geological Survey.

Jane has helped out with several volunteer organizations, including the Toronto Branch of the Women in Mining Network where she organized the monthly networking lunches for several years, and the Toronto Geological Discussion Group where she was a member of the organizing committee (2012-2017). She was an enthusiastic member of the WIM Toronto walking team that has raised more than $1,000,000 (2007–2017) for the Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation that funds research benefiting cancer patients. Since 2017, she has been involved with welcoming a number of refugees to Canada.

About Absolutely Interdisciplinary

Understanding the capacities and limitations of complex new technologies like AI calls for more than just a technical perspective. Absolutely Interdisciplinary will convene researchers from across disciplines to build new, interdisciplinary approaches to advance our understanding of how to meet the challenge of ensuring AI and other powerful technologies promote human well-being. This year, Absolutely Interdisciplinary takes place virtually, with a one-day graduate workshop on November 4th, followed by four scheduled sessions across two days on November 5th and 6thVisit the conference website for more information and register here.

About this year’s theme

Humans are a fundamentally normative species, with complex cognitive and social systems for shaping behaviour to implement collectively-determined values and norms in support of cooperation. Building AI systems that are robustly aligned with human values requires deep understandings of how these normative systems work. At the same time, advances in AI present unique opportunities to investigate and test what capacities contribute to our ability to build, maintain, and abide by norms. This year, Absolutely Interdisciplinary takes up the challenge of exploring these dynamics under the theme Human and Machine Normativity: New Connections. Learn more here.
