"We must also recalibrate our expectations of Aboriginal people in an employment context. Across our three universities, there are more than 700 students who identify as Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander. These undergraduates are our future lawyers, accountants, engineers, authors, psychologists, scientists. They are the future of this great state, but are still too few in numbers. Collaboration between communities, schools, business and programs like the Clusters are critical if we are to swell these numbers in the future."His Excellency the Honourable Hieu Van Le AO, Governor of South Australia and Chief Ambassador of the Clusters Program
A career is so much more than a job. A career is a journey over a significant period of a person’s life and with opportunities for progress and personal and professional development. The employers who support the Governor’s Aboriginal Employment Industry Clusters Program are passionate about promoting their industries as potential career options for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
We are delighted to present a series of videos showcasing some of the success stories that have come out of the Governor’s Aboriginal Employment Industry Clusters program. We encourage you to watch each of them as they highlight the journey of the employer and the Aboriginal person forging a career for themselves in that industry.
