CIG helps clients in their efforts to respect people’s rights and make a difference in their communities. We do this by matching credible expertise to the needs of each project and by working with integrity, empathy, trust, curiosity and flexibility.
We provide research, advisory, training, and coaching services aimed at helping organisations understand the context where they operate, build respectful relationships and contribute value. We work in the extractives, energy, infrastructure, agri-food, conservation, and financial sectors.
We run training courses on topics such as social impact assessment, human rights, social investment, indigenous peoples & FPIC, and resettlement & livelihoods.
The training is delivered in a range of formats: e-learning, classroom, field trip & experiential. We partner with universities for some of our courses.
We are currently offering two (unpaid) exciting internship positions for currently enrolled students that have a passion and interest in working in this space!Read More
