This interactive WIMnet meeting will allow for attendees to have robust discussion around the topics of:
What are your respective companies doing to ensure diversity of thinking – and ultimately change the culture to ensure social responsibility of business is considered in a wider sense than just solely to maximise profits?
What do attendees see is the effect of monocultures at the decision- making level of the companies, operations, mine-sites we are a part?
What are the examples of culture transformation possible when diversity is achieved at the decision-making level of companies?
