One of the world’s leading engineering, architectural and 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 of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

GHD started working with CareerTrackers in late 2010 and currently employs over ten students in the program around the country as part of teams including industrial electrical and automation, stakeholder engagement, and roads service groups.

CareerTrackers is a national non-profit organisation that works with Indigenous university students and private sector companies to create career pathways through a structured internship program.

Peter Dunn, Indigenous Services Global Business Leader, noted, “Working with our Indigenous Australians is more than just a responsibility; it’s good 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 responsibility.”

The award will be presented during the CareerTrackers 2nd Annual Gala Dinner on 16 February 2012 in Sydney.
