Great Barrier Reef Yellow Zone Project
The JT Academy has been a valuable partner in addressing talent attraction and retention challenges in the mining industry. Since 2019, Evolution’s operations have actively engaged in the academy’s various programs, such as JT Community, JT Youth, JT Leadership, and Lead Like a Girl. These programs have supported the attraction and retention of local, indigenous, and female candidates into the mining industry, and have enhanced Evolution’s talent attraction, brand promotion, and community education programs. They have also led to the delivery of thousands of educational workbooks across our local communities, workshops on self-confidence, JT Leadership sessions, as well as school and site visits by Johnathan Thurston (NRL football legend) which have generated cultures of positivity, self-belief, and cohesion in our communities. So far, by leveraging the Academy’s resources, Evolution has increased the number of job applicants identified as Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander to 12% in FY21. This partnership is part of enabling sustainable positive legacies in our communities, particularly with equal access to employment, training, and capacity building.
This innovative research offers an opportunity for Evolution to improve the health of people in our communities and globally, save lives, build the diversity of new gold-based products in medical diagnostics, and demonstrate the relevance of gold.
