GHD, one of the world’s leading engineering, architectural and
environmental consulting companies has been recognised at the 2013
Property Council of Australia Innovation Awards.
At the event, CareerTrackers, in association
with GHD and other property industry partners, won an award for its
Indigenous Internship Program.
CareerTrackers is an Australian, non-profit
organisation that works with Indigenous university students and
private organisations to create career pathways. The organisation
currently has 507 cadets in Australia, of which 13 are placed with
GHD, making us one of the largest supporters of the program.
Michael Combs, Founder and Chief Executive
Officer of CareerTrackers, is thrilled with the result and thanks
GHD for its unwavering support. He offers, “It was an honour to be
the first non-profit organisation to receive a Property Council
Award in its 34-year history, and even more of an honour to be the
first Indigenous project recognised.”
Jill Hannaford, GHD’s Service Line Leader for
Stakeholder Engagement and member of the CareerTrackers Advisory
Board, along with GHD interns Kodi Galleghan and Tammy Parker,
helped present the project to the judges earlier in the year.
The Innovation award was the most highly
contested of the event, with 20 finalists that included projects
and programs from John Holland, Charter Hall, GPT Group, Mirvac and
Major Projects Victoria.
