The dialogue series features specialists in their fields providing an outsider’s perspective on the mining industry.

Discussing big issues including how to make the sector more transparent and accountable, indigenous and community partnerships, environmental and sustainable principles, and attracting the next generation and our future workforce to STEM.

The series will come to life at the International Mining and Resources Conference (IMARC) in Melbourne from 17-19 October 2022, with the brand-new Talk It Forward Dialogue Tables.

The Talk it Forward Dialogue Tables are 60-minute sessions within the open-aired Collaboration Arena featuring 10 industry leaders engaging in dialogue about industry’s softer topics that are hardest to address.

Attendees can sit around the main table to hear the dialogue or catch the conversation as it is broadcasted across the Bonanza Hall.

Conversations will include strategies for flexibility, requirements for future readiness, attracting the next generation of explorers and miners, how to engage local communities into the workforce, and the importance of leadership and culture.
