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. 

Join us over four weeks in August and September 2021 as we discuss how the landscape of mining activity is shifting and how professionals can be proactive leaders, prepared for the evolution of our industry. Topics discussed will include those vital to the next generation of mining including environmental, social, governance (ESG) and social responsibility, the future workforce, technology and innovation, along with emerging critical minerals. The series will feature two panel discussions, as well as two fireside chats with leaders from the resources industry. 

Series panelists and speakers

Our panellists and speakers will share with participants their vision for the next generation of mining and explore 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 will hear how we can act on opportunities that will successfully deliver a more robust resources industry.
