Plenary panel discussion: Australia’s Got Talent: but why isn’t it interested in mining?

-

The mining sector has been rocked by reputational scandals from gender inequality to cultural abominations and continues to battle a legacy built on environmental atrocities. This not only creates a challenge for miners in recruiting the key skills for their businesses, but for governments in ensuring the operability of the sector responsible for supplying the raw materials central to energy-transition policies.

  • What should the near-term recruitment strategy look like for mining?
  • How should this fit within government policy and what government support is necessary?
  • What does the workplace of the future need to look like to attract talent in the long term?
