In partnership with Whitehaven Coal, IMARC is delighted to offer 10 complimentary passes for Indigenous mining and resources executives to attend the full three day event as part of IMARC's Indigenous Participation Program.
These passes provide an opportunity for the industry's Indigenous executives to network, learn and be a part of the conversations at Australia’s most influential mining event.
We will be accepting nominations for 2023 soon, please check back again for further details.
We aim for a holistic approach to help empower local Indigenous communities, through initiatives including childhood education and support, education and training, and employment, to procurement and cultural awareness amongst our workforce.
We believe the best way to support communities is to provide opportunities for stable, long-term employment. Our Indigenous employment strategy is one of the commitments outlined in our Stretch Reconciliation Action Plan. We are proud that 20% of employees at our Maules Creek mine and 11% of our total workforce identify as Indigenous – reflecting our broader Gunnedah Basin community where about 10% of the population identify as Indigenous.
From our leaders and employees to our community and our suppliers, we consciously act to enable equal opportunity.
