Lending a helping hand on Community Day

14 Oct 2019

Now in its 24th year, Community Day enables our people to work alongside their colleagues, community partners, family members and suppliers to make a difference in the communities where we live and work.



In Canberra, we worked with an existing partner, the Australian Indigenous Mentoring Experience (AIME). We’ve supported AIME since 2012 to help bridge the gap between Indigenous high school students and universities.
