We contribute to the communities in which we live and work by partnering with local organisations whose missions align with our community engagement vision:
Valuing Diversity. Supporting Communities. Investing in our Future.
Over the last year we have sponsored a range of community initiatives including:
Austmine Women in STEM METS Career Pathway Program:
In 2017/18 we enthusiastically supported this inaugural program that aims to raise awareness of the mining equipment, technology and services (METS) sector and career opportunities. We hosted a student and extended her employment beyond the 12-week placement. We look forward to our next Austmine STEM METS placement.
Indigenous Literacy Foundation:
We are proud to support the ILF, who are working to improve the lives and opportunities of Indigenous Australians living in remote communities through the provision of books and literacy resources in over 200 communities across Australia.
Isaac Regional Charity Fund:
For two years we have supported this organisation in its work to aid persons in distress in the Isaac district of central Queensland. Sedgman has a strong presence in this location, we are proud to support an organisation that is providing assistance to tackle local issues.
South Africa Medical and Education Foundation (SAME Foundation):
Since the early days of our presence in South Africa, we have been involved with this not-for-profit organisation. Their sole aim is to improve healthcare and education in poverty-stricken communities.
Mackay Special Children's Christmas party:
In 2018 we supported this charity in their work to provide an annual event for children with disabilities. With many of our families living and working in this area, we are proud of our contribution to this grass-roots organisation.
In conjunction with our client at Middlemount, we support this charity in their work providing vital services to rural children with who are ill or have special needs.
Women in Mining network (WIMnet) conference:
Sponsorship of this conference highlighted our commitment to empowering diverse leadership in the resources industry.
