Rhiannan Reid; 2019 AES Chairman’s Award winner, her team and the Director of AES.

"The AES Traineeship Program is about empowering young Indigenous people through solid mentoring, strengthening cultural identities, creating big dreams, and providing real employment pathways.” - AES CEO Kristy Masela.

Earlier this month Aboriginal Employment Strategy (AES) celebrated the achievements of 50 Trainees in a Graduation Ceremony on Gadigal Country, in Surry Hills, Sydney. 

AES CEO, Kristy Masela congratulated the graduates as they embarked  on the next chapter of their lives as strong, proud, skilled and experienced leaders.

“We’ve been graduating trainees for quite some time. Some years we’ve graduated up to 150 trainees. This year we’ve just graduated 50 and we’ve got another 50 due to start next year,” Kristy Masela said.

Over the past 23 years AES has provided more than 21,000 employment opportunities and 2,500 Traineeships to young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples in urban, regional, rural and remote locations.

The graduation ceremony was also an opportunity to acknowledge outstanding achievers.

Rhiannon Reid of GP Synergy was announced as the winner of this year’s Chairperson's Achievement Award.

This award acknowledged a candidate who has demonstrated resilience, strength and courage, demonstrated abilities beyond their years, and has gone above and beyond to complete their Traineeship
