Diversity & Inclusion Webinar Series: What is Diversity and Why is it Important for the METS Sector?

While the mining industry and METS sector is being rapidly transformed by a range of new technologies and innovations, people remain key to our competitive future. The METS sector currently faces a monumental challenge around the topic of people. We are struggling to attract the necessary skills sets to utilise and maximise opportunities brought by new technologies.

Diversity and inclusion are critical to solving this challenge. Not only do these values create empowering workplaces that provide fulfilment beyond a salary, they foster innovative and adaptive mindsets that allow businesses to prosper in this new digital age. Beyond that, many mining companies are now considering suppliers’ workforce diversity in making final selections with contracts.

Austmine’s Diversity and Inclusion Webinar Series will explore the role of these principles in the METS sector, identifying what it means for companies and industries to embraces diversity and inclusion and the benefits of doing so.  

In part 1 our expert speakers will discuss what diversity means to them  and explore the current landscape of mining and METS diversity. They will then discuss why it is so critical to the success and sustainability of the METS sector, providing insights into key research and practices from their own businesses.

Topics include:

  • The definition of diversity and the various shapes and sizes it comes in;
  • The current landscape of diversity in the mining industry and METS sector;
  • Benefits of diversity with examples from research and businesses;
  • Why it is critical for the METS sector to embrace diversity and inclusion.
