Partnerships with business and industry
CVGT Employment works closely with businesses and industry to build inclusive practices, improve equality and ensure every person has access to employment.
Our collaborations are many, and they are formal and informal – from meeting in a boardroom to having a chat at a sports event.
Yet, there is a shared vision for developing pathways to employment for people of all ages and abilities, from seeking positive outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in all communities, to ensuring young people have the support they need to make life-changing decisions.
