Indigenous Participation Program

We invite Indigenous executives from the mining and resources sector to nominate

IMARC will again put the spotlight on Indigenous participation within the sector through multiple partnerships, opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander industry leaders, and a panel discussion dedicated to First Nations people on the day 2 morning plenary, 1 November. 

The panel on Recognising First Nations and Developing Better Indigenous Partnerships that Support Shared Prosperity will include insights from Ian Hamm, Chair, First Nations Foundation, Vanessa Elliott, Independent Non-Executive Director, JP Gladu, Strategic Advisor, First Nations Major Projects Coalition (FNMPC) of Canada, and Christina Coleman, Co-Lead, IWIMRA.

Indigenous Women in Mining and Resources Australia (IWIMRA) has reconfirmed its partnership with IMARC, working to raise the profile of First Nations women and contributing to best practice solutions ensuring the visibility, voice and quality participation of Indigenous women within the sector. 

Following the beautiful art that was produced by artist Leah Cummins of Bunya Designs and attendees of IMARC 2022, the artwork produced at IMARC 2023 will be silent auctioned at this year's IMARC Gala Dinner

IMARC invite mining industry executives that identify as Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander people to apply for an Indigenous Participation Program pass to attend IMARC 2023 by completing this form.
