Briony Coleman Master of Community Relations Graduate (2012)

Building on a background in Natural Resource Management, the Master of Community Relations program provided Briony with diversity in skills and knowledge applicable to both the environment and social responsibility fields, as well as with tools to use 'on the ground' for her everyday work with key stakeholders. Briony is now based in the western USA as an Environmental Specialist for Newmont Mining Corporation's Northern Nevada operations.

Since completing the program Briony has been able to implement the tools learned and, coupled with the solid background covered on principles of Corporate Social Responsibility, has been able to successfully create and foster good community relations with a very wide range of members of rural and regional communities in Australia and the USA that are exposed to the mining industry.
