2021 Series

In 2020, resources industry professionals showed just how resilient and agile they can be in a crisis. But the pandemic raised important questions: What does leadership look like during times of change and uncertainty? How can professionals inspire a more enduring industry in periods of disruption? 

AusIMM’s Thought Leadership Series is an opportunity for you to engage with prominent minds on global issues, participate in thought-provoking discussions and network with leaders of industry. 

Through August and September 2021, the Thought Leadership Series discussed how the landscape of mining activity is shifting and how professionals can be proactive leaders, prepared for the evolution of our industry. Topics included those vital to the next generation of mining: environmental, social, governance (ESG) and social responsibility, the future workforce, technology and innovation, along with emerging critical minerals. The series featured two panel discussions, as well as two fireside chats with leaders from the resources industry. 

Series panelists and speakers

In 2021 our panellists and speakers will shared with participants their vision for the next generation of mining and explored new ideas about how professionals and organisations can respond to changing circumstances and create new capabilities during periods of flux. By looking at the role of professionals in the next evolution of mining, professionals heard how we can act on opportunities that will successfully deliver a more robust resources industry.
