Social Responsibility in the Resources Sector Professional Development

Developed in response to demand for more modular, intensive workshops and flexible study options, our short courses and masterclasses offer those engaged with the resources sector the opportunity to learn alongside peers and to hear from experts in the field.

Our courses and masterclasses are led by highly qualified and skilled practitioners working around the globe. They focus on specialised topics and offer participants the opportunity to develop new skills, gain exposure to latest practice, and make key contacts in the field.

The Centre for Social Responsibility in Mining also delivers customised workshops, enabling teams to develop new knowledge, explore innovative concepts and practices, and unpack complex sustainability scenarios. Workshop objectives can be tailored to the needs of individual organisations, including companies, government agencies and NGOs, and can be facilitated at The University of Queensland, your corporate office, or on-site .
