Nazanin Omrani-Moghaddam, EIT

Porcupine-Kapuskasing Chapter

In both her professional life, as a mining engineering intern at Newmont Goldcorp in Timmins, Ont, and as a PEO volunteer with the Porcupine­Kapuskasing Chapter, Nazanin Omrani-Moghaddam, EIT has exhibited great leadership potential across many endeavours.

A mining EIT since 2015, Nazanin is involved in mine planning and scheduling, leading weekly and daily plan meetings with engineers, operation supervisors and mine managers; and directing the operation’s drill and mining activity to achieve production targets. Recently she helped develop and manage improvement projects leading to enhanced rock fragmentation, increased production, reduced costs for drilling and blasting and increased dump capacity.

And as an active member of the Porcupine-­Kapuskasing Chapter since 2017, she serves as chapter secretary and education co-ordinator, demonstrating leadership by organizing events including the annual scholarship fundraiser, golf tournament and EIT nights. She has promoted the profession by participating in Government Liaison Program (GLP) meetings, attending the 2018 Queen's Park reception, attending regional congresses and maintaining the chapter's social media channels. She has been an advocate for women in engineering by co-organizing Girls Expo in Science Timmins 2019—an event aimed at promoting STEM careers among young women students in the community.

Nazanin has demonstrated an interest in PEO affairs and governance by taking on roles of higher responsibility within the chapter. She continues to show her leadership potential by accepting new challenges and overseeing their execution to successful conclusions that ultimately benefit the chapter and profession.
