Celebrating Indigenous Excellence
The CareerTrackers Gala Awards are a celebration of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander excellence in our community. We award and celebrate individuals and organisations who have demonstrated leadership and excellence in the CareerTrackers community.
This year we will be celebrating our communities locally by holding five state-based Gala Award events to ensure more people have the opportunity to come together.
