Balance for Better Program

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, as launched in 2019.

Diversity and inclusion will be a key theme spoken of, and seen, across all areas of the event from topics and speakers providing technical presentations, investor insights, networking events, IMARC’s Big Conversations, the plenary stage, and also the IMARC Gala Dinner.

IMARC will highlight the impact and achievements of women in mining while also reflecting the strides being made industry-wide to be more gender balanced, and showcase the industry-wide benefits of diversity and inclusion.

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.
