Many industrial projects take place in indigenous territories or in areas where ethnic communities are present. For companies, this reality represents complexities, challenges and opportunities when engaging with these peoples.

We invite you to ask yourself whether your company is facing this reality and to reflect on the following questions:

1. Does it motivate you to get to know the ethnic community in depth?
2. Does it create uncertainty or fear?
3. Do you have a procedure designed to address the relationship?
4. Do you see this as an obstacle to the success of the project/operation?
5. Do you have elements to implement free, prior and informed consent?
6. Is this an issue that is delegated to the legal and social management areas?

If two or more of your affirmative answers correspond to numbers 1, 3 and 5, congratulations, your organisation is well on its way to success in engaging with ethnic communities.

If, on the other hand, you answered yes to 2 or more questions in 2, 4 and 6, your company urgently needs to integrate social performance in all areas. At InSight, we help you design and implement all the elements to effectively address relationships. See our complete portfolio at https://insightsocial.org/que-hacemos/
