"A Gender Perspective on Business, Human Rights, and Sustainable Mining"

Wednesday, February 8, 2017
1:00 pm in ATAC 5036

 

Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights were endorsed by the United Nations Human Rights Council in 2011, and are promoted to Canadian mining companies operating internationally as part of Canada’s 2014 CRS Strategy.  Entitled “Doing Business the Canadian Way”, the CSR Strategy promotes several international CSR standards that embed the business responsibility to respect rights with specific attention to the rights of indigenous peoples and local communities.  Notably, a gender perspective was introduced for the first time in the 2015 OECD Stakeholder Engagement Guidance for extractive industries.

This presentation will examine why respect for the rights of women and girls, as well as men and boys, is crucial for responsible and sustainable mining, both within and outside of Canada.

"Your Career Your Brand"

Monday, November 7, 2016
at 10:00 am
in CB 3031

About the Webinar:

"Your Career Your Brand" is a guide to understanding and implementing the concepts and methods for building value and making a difference in all aspects of your working career. To build value or show you have the potential to be a difference maker is expressed and validated though your passion, work ethic, persistence and improvement. These "key performance indicators" are the hallmarks for recruiters and employers when looking for prospective employees to grow an organization. Creating your own personalized "brand" and "brand products" is the first step on the pathway to showing your potential to build value and enjoying a fulfilling and successful career. This involves creating a personalized "brand statement" that concisely reflects you and how you build value uniquely. Your brand statement identifies you as distinct from others and is featured on your business card, LinkedIn profile and resume. A focused networking plan will enable you to articulate your brand to prospective and suitable organizations. The first step in your career begins with having a brand that you truly feel and believe makes you a unique difference maker.

About the Presenter:  After 45 enjoyable years as a professional geoscientist in the mineral exploration industry, Patrick has turned his passion for geoscience and mining towards helping student's transition from academia to the work place. He has given career development lectures, workshops and webinars on a volunteer basis at over 150 colleges and universities across Canada, the US, Europe and South America. When he is not mentoring students and graduates, Patrick does presentations on geology and mining in the elementary schools and talks about careers in mining to secondary school students. His brand statement on his website "Geodude Corner'' says it all: "Helping Students and Professionals Discover Their Greatness and Build Value".
