IMARC encourages indigenous inclusion

Mining is one of the world’s leading industries for indigenous inclusion and at the International Mining and Resources Conference (IMARC) the next phase of workforce diversity and indigenous inclusion is on the agenda.

Among some of the conference’s top presenters to discuss indigenous inclusion will be Jason Eades, chief executive officer of PwC Indigenous Consulting which is the consulting firm’s specialised division addressing this important social issue.

Eades will be joined by Laura Tyler, asset president of BHP Billiton’s Cannington Mine, and Rebecca Capper, human resources specialist for Anglo American Metallurgical Coal, in a panel session addressing the challenges, advances and benefits of fostering workplace diversity.

IMARC conference director Siobhan Corry said “mining is a progressive industry and has made strong improvements to become one of the world’s most diverse sources of employment”.

“We are highly supportive of furthering discussions on the next phase in indigenous inclusion,” Corry said.

IMARC is shaping to be one of the nation’s most comprehensive events with indigenous inclusion being coupled with an extensive program of technological advancements and company presentations.”

IMARC will feature a number of mining companies renowned for their diversity programs, including Rio Tinto, Fortescue Metals Group and BHP Billiton.

Fortescue Metals Group chief executive officer Nev Power is one of the event’s most highly anticipated keynote speakers.
