Maximizing Partnerships Between Indigenous Communities and the Extractive Sector
Join us for a discussion on ways companies in the extractive industry engage indigenous communities in their areas of operation. Many extractive companies find themselves operating in close proximity to indigenous people and their territories, and working constructively with those communities is now a major business priority. The panelists will offer their perspectives on how companies and indigenous communities alike can benefit from greater cooperation, whether through creating new education opportunities, offering extractive industry-related job training to potential indigenous employees, or by working toward encouraging local economic growth.
