Series background

AusIMM’s Thought Leadership Series is a premium annual on-demand webinar series, uncovering and forging critical thinking for the future directions of the resource sector.

Now in its fifth year, the online Series provides a unique and immersive opportunity to engage with prominent minds on global issues and participate in thought-provoking discussions. 


In 2022, the Series delivered five captivating webinars, exploring five strategic topics that were vital to secure the industry’s future.

COVID served as a powerful reminder to the resources sector’s that we have a vital role in underpinning economic resilience, employment and investment. While the industry has adapted to life post lock downs, the operating and strategic environment for mining only grows more complex.

In a constantly evolving environment, resources professionals are the essential drivers of change to support the growth of a diverse, resilient and responsible resources sector.

Topics covered included Indigenous voices, technology and decarbonisation, and the future workforce


In 2021 AusIMM's Thought Leadership Series was delivered as four, thought-provoking online presentations.

Focusing on the theme of Next Generation Mining, the series explored some of the critical challenges and opportunities facing current and future leaders, driving towards a sustainable and robust industry where Australia plays a key role in the global geopolitical landscape.
