The central pillar of the Stakeholder Engagement programme was a roundtable event, scheduled for October 2020 in London. Seats at the roundtable had been allocated to industry, employee representatives, investors, NGOs, specialist services firms, and government proxies. A complete breakdown of those attending can be found on our Partners page.
A two-and-a-half hour, closed-door discussion was to be followed by a broader networking lunch, over which we would record video interviews with participants and select guests to gauge immediate reaction to the roundtable and to further broaden the discussion, respectively.
However, travel and social restrictions created by the ongoing pandemic have made it impossible to proceed with the Stakeholder Engagement Roundtable as planned. We are currently considering options including digital discussions and a later date for a physical roundtable event.
A webcast with our core Stakeholder Engagement partners will be run as a discrete, virtual event in July 2020. That discussion will focus on how technology is, and should be, used in building better relationships with mining stakeholders.
