Diversity and inclusion

Advancing diversity and inclusion in mining

A sustainable resources industry relies on welcoming a diverse range of talent into our professions, reflective of the communities in which we live and work, and supporting all people in resources to reach their full potential.

Diverse skills, experience and perspectives allow us, as people working across the sector, to be successful. This sort of diversity demands inclusion. Inclusion is about creating the right environment, with the right culture and leadership. This is about creating safe physical and psychological spaces that allow people to bring the best and most authentic version of themselves to work. 

Industry experts provide practical advice, inspiration, resources and guidance to assist employers, employees and the broader mining sector to foster a more diverse and inclusive workforce.
