Audrey, leveraging her proprietary Neuro Mind Methodology® and Whole-Person Safety® system developed in 2011, identified a pressing need for psychological safety in the mining sector through her collaboration with RJC and her mining industry experience. The acronym “MIND” in “MIND your MINE” stands for “Mindful, Inclusive, and Neuro-Diversity,” reflecting the program’s focus. This transformational strategy and approach aim to meet the mining industry’s immediate demands for genuine, inclusive, and neurodiverse leadership, thereby empowering the modern mining workforce. Audrey’s innovative methods and unique experiential learning modules have provided effective solutions for numerous global enterprises in mining, agriculture, and manufacturing. These efforts are driving a paradigm shift towards ensuring mental and physical safety, building trust, and fostering a true sense of belonging among employees. Today, “MIND your MINE” is an essential tool and learning process, playing a pivotal role in transforming the present and future landscape of the mining workforce.

Webinar Description: In the demanding and high-stakes world of mining, the mental health impact on workers is profound and often overlooked. The industry faces a critical challenge: intense job pressures, relentless psychological stress, erratic shift schedules, and prolonged family separation are fueling a rise in mental health issues like anxiety, depression, and sleep disorders. This escalating mental health crisis, compounded by a deficit of psychological safety, is driving a significant talent drain in the sector. It’s imperative for mining organizations to elevate psychological safety and inclusion, creating a culture where employees can freely learn, contribute, and voice concerns without the threat of retaliation and free from fear. 

The path forward for many companies lies in understanding and integrating psychological safety and inclusion at their core. Mere awareness is insufficient; the true test is embedding these principles to transform workforce behaviours, and outcomes, and ultimately, boost employee satisfaction. The industry must move beyond superficial measures to forge environments where these values are intrinsically woven into the fabric of their operations.

Join us on January 8th, 2024, for a pivotal webinar led by Audrey Hlembizky, tailored for mining and natural resources professionals. This session will delve into the essence of whole-person safety, demystifying psychological safety — defining what it is and, crucially, what it isn’t. It will offer clear insights to dispel the myths surrounding this vital safety principle, particularly in its integration with diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging (DEI&B) initiatives. The webinar emphasizes the necessity of genuine, neurodiverse leadership to transcend mere rhetoric and genuinely embody these values in every leadership facet.

This event will underscore the importance of psychological safety as a cornerstone of effective DEI&B initiatives, stressing that the ‘whole person’ approach is essential for both physiological and psychological well-being. We will explore how a deep comprehension and implementation of psychological safety can revolutionize workplace cultures, nurturing an environment of dignity, trust and where every individual feels acknowledged, respected, and empowered.
