AusIMM returns with 2024 Thought Leadership Series

The Australasian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy (AusIMM) is restarting its ‘Thought Leadership Series’ in 2024 to address global challenges, exchange ideas, and propel innovation and transformation for the mining sector. 

Ausenco, Byrnecut, Epiroc, Fortescue (ASX:FMG), professional services firm PwC, mining giant Rio Tinto (ASX:RIO), and Weir Minerals are all 2024 signature partners for the events.  

This year’s events mark the seventh year fostering conversations between industry leaders, mining executives, government bodies, academia, and resources professionals.   

The series will include four live VIP events across Australia, and will also be streamed online free of charge. PwC will also be co-hosting the events. 

According to AusIMM, this year’s theme is based on ‘responsible mining in a digital era’, and aims to build on the conversations held during the 2023 series that unearthed a shifting paradigm in sustainable mining. 

Attendees of the events can expect to witness four strategic topics, including ‘innovating for success in a digital era’, ‘investing in a sustainable future’, ‘achieving a nature positive advantage’, and ‘striking the balance between safety and productivity’. 

The panelists leading these discussions include The Association of Super Funds of Australia CEO Mary Delahunty, Rio Tinto (Pilbara Mines) Managing Director Matthew Holcz, and Bellevue Gold (ASX:BGL) Managing Director and CEO Darren Stralow, among others. 

The series will kick off with ‘Innovating for success in a digital era’ in Perth on Wednesday 29 May 2024.  Events in Melbourne and Brisbane, and others in Perth will follow. 

AusIMM is a body operating in the resources sector focused on shaping careers, showcasing leadership, creating communities, and upholding industry standards.
