The Local Voices Program has been developed by CSIRO to help communities engage with companies that operate alongside them. Over the next three years, the Local Voices project aims to improve engagement between BHP and the community by providing an opportunity for increased understanding of views and experiences and encouraging the building of trust through actions.
In October 2019, CSIRO and BHP held the ‘Conversation Starter’ Events in Moranbah and Dysart.
These events were attended by local community stakeholders and gave an opportunity for attendees to express their feelings about the way BHP is regarded in the community.
With Brendan Lynn, General Manager of Peak Downs and Keith Haley, Former General Manager of BMA Saraji in attendance – along with other BHP representatives including members of the Corporate Affairs team and Executive Assistants – it provided a fantastic opportunity for community members to share opinions and ask questions.
This event also gave an update on the data received from the Anchor Survey so far and what this means for Moranbah and Dysart and how that data will be used to continue. If you would like to see the results so far, visit the Local Voices Website.
