CareerTrackers (CT) mentor Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander university and high school students to help them build a brighter future by engaging in networking, professional development and internship opportunities. The aim for the gala awards is to give students and employment/university partners the opportunity to celebrate the achievements of the CT community.
GCPHN was proudly represented at the awards by student intern, Jodie Hickson, who is currently completing her final semester of a degree in Public Health and Health Promotion degree at Deakin University. Alongside Jodie were GCPHN Managers Kellie Trigger (Health Intelligence Planning and Engagement), Toby Smithson (Communications), and Sharon Sheather (Human Resources).
The 2023 CT gala night was beautifully organised and embraced the historic surrounds of the Brisbane City Hall with a formal cocktail function. Kicking things off was a warm Welcome to Country and corroboree song from Aunty Kathy. There were two Alumni keynote speakers, Carlos Prince and Holly Johnson.
Carlos, a Communication Engineer at Telstra, spoke about following his passion of music and creating Blak Label Music, where he and fellow alumni engage and showcase local artists and talent. Holly gave advice about taking on every opportunity and leaning on your support network.
This was a truly special evening celebrating Indigenous excellence and community engagement. To be part of CT as an Intern or as an employment partner is a wonderful opportunity which changes lives every day.
