Creating Connections


A one-week interactive digital skills and career exploration program.

Creating Connections is a foundational digital skills and career exploration program designed to meet women where they are. It provides the necessary equipment and support needed to participate in the program, and ultimately stay connected with WRDC supports and other resources after completion.

The program is inclusive and welcomes individuals of all digital skill levels who wish to gain hands-on experience and develop digital skills to support their career development. The three main components of the program are digital literacy and skill development, career development, and career exploration focused on local opportunities.

In partnership with Calibre Mining, WRDC is delivering a Mining Edition of the Creating Connections program in August and September in select communities. This five-day interactive program assists women in building their digital knowledge while exploring career opportunities in the mining sector.
