A champion for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander interns
For the past four years, Life Without Barriers has partnered with CareerTrackers to provide paid internships for a number of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students.
At the CareerTrackers’ gala awards, Leoni Lippitt, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Lead for Queensland was named Intern Manager of the Year.
Leoni was nominated by intern, Daniel Chilly, who spoke eloquently about the inspirational leadership provided during his journey.
‘Aunty Leoni is a strong, proud Torres Strait Islander woman who strives to find safe, inclusive spaces for employees and people supported within Life Without Barriers and the broader community,’ said Daniel.
