consulting companies, GHD, has been nominated to receive a 2012
CareerTrackers Trailblazer Award. This award is presented to
organisations demonstrating profound leadership in the employment

2010 and currently employs over ten students in the program around
the country as part of teams including industrial electrical and

private sector companies to create career pathways through a
structured internship program.

business practice. The relationship with CareerTrackers is
part of a broader strategy to stimulate GHD’s commitment to
Indigenous economic development and reducing disadvantages.”
Founder and CEO of CareerTrackers Michael Combs
noted, “CareerTrackers takes great pride in the partnership we have
created with GHD. The approach to Indigenous employment by GHD is
that of a business imperative rather than social
