This is the first of their GeoConnection series of webinars.  Here are details from the AGI announcement:
 
The webinar will bring leaders from different employment sectors to discuss prospects for careers for geoscientists in their field. We encourage you to pass along this email to all of your colleagues and students who are interested in employment in the geosciences.

This webinar will focus on future opportunities in the minerals industry,
including both traditional and non-traditional roles for geoscientists.

Panelists will include:

* Leigh Freeman from Downing Teal, a leading recruiter of talent for the global
  minerals industry, will look at the supply and demand trends for geoscientists
  in the minerals sector

  trading sector and the numerous employment opportunities in the financial
  sector

  in sustainable mining practices

Following the panel presentations, an open discussion period will be held for
audience members from around the world to ask questions of the panel and each
other.
