About the Awards

Community Partnership Award - logo

This award promotes strong guiding behaviour within the resource sector by providing a platform for innovative and meaningful partnerships to be showcased and celebrated.

This award publicly recognises outstanding achievements and leadership in building constructive community partnerships that provide positive outcomes and promote strong guiding behaviour within the resources sector.

Any major development can bring change to a community. Such change can include an increase in population and the associated demand on local services such as education, housing and health services. Change can also bring new social capacities and skills, infrastructure and business development, as well as the investment of resources into social programs.

The Community Partnership Resources Sector Award helps build the reputation of Western Australian resources and extractive industry organisations that are working closely with communities or community groups to understand local concerns and issues, provide positive outcomes, and leave a positive legacy that extends well beyond gaining a social licence to operate.
