With a focus on the critical role of agreement-making processes with land-connected peoples, this Masterclass will draw heavily on experience and case studies from Australia and overseas. It will highlight the importance of establishing a knowledge base, demonstrating commitment, and resourcing implementation processes. Participants will learn about the practical elements of agreements at different stages of the operational lifecycle, and key agreement components, such as governance principles, grievance mechanisms, monitoring and evaluation.

About Social Performance in the Resources Sector

The team in the Centre for Social Responsibility in Mining (CSRM) offers a range of professional development options to build industry capacity. We deliver a series of “foundation” courses, specialised Master Classes and tailored training to meet specific stakeholder needs. We also work with community groups to build their capacity to engage large-scale mining companies.

Developed in response to demand for more modular, intensive workshops and flexible online options, our courses offer those working in the mining and social performance field the opportunity to learn alongside peers in the sector and to hear from experts in the field. The 2020 calendar covers critical aspects of social performance in the resources sector.
