This workshop covers practical ways of understanding social risk and impact. It provides a way to navigate overlapping ideas of risk and impact, and explores a range of social domains, including human rights, resilience, vulnerability, indigenous peoples, gender, and justice. The need for data to support decision-making is emphasised. The workshop is intended for those who manage social impacts of mining operations, and who commission social impact assessments and other studies.

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.
