Balance for Better Program

Committed to promoting equality, diversity and inclusion across all areas of the mining and resources industry.

IMARC continues to make a strong commitment to promoting equality, diversity, and inclusion across all areas of the mining and resources industry with our Balance for Better Program.

Launched in 2019, the IMARC conference provides a platform to highlight the impact and achievements of women in mining, while also reflecting on the strides being made by industry to be more gender balanced. 

As such Diversity and inclusion continues to be a key theme spoken of, and seen, across all areas of the event, showcasing the industry-wide benefits.

From topics and speakers providing technical presentations, investor insights, networking events, the Talk it Forward Dialogue Tables, the plenary stage, and the IMARC Gala Dinner.

IMARC provides and creates opportunities, welcoming people from all walks of life, and of all backgrounds.

As the International Mining and Resources Conference (IMARC) takes place on the lands of the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung people of the Kulin nations. We wish to acknowledge them as the traditional owners of the lands and waterways and pay our respects to their elders, past and present, and emerging. 

We have partnered with the Indigenous Women in Mining & Resources Australia (IWIMRA) organisation to foster stronger connections between First Nations communities and the minerals and resources sector, as well as conitinue to raise the profile of First Nations people working in the industry globally.
