NOMINATIONS ARE NOW OPEN for the 26th annual Gili Awards, which
will be presented on Thursday 26 May.
The purpose of the TAFE NSW Gili Awards is to acknowledge the
outstanding achievements of Aboriginal students; the contribution and
dedication of TAFE NSW staff, and the outcomes of TAFE NSW engagement
with industry, schools and Aboriginal communities.
The annual Awards ceremony celebrates and recognizes the achievements
of Aboriginal TAFE NSW students, staff and programs that have
positively contributed to Aboriginal communities.
This year's Awards ceremony coincides with the 19th annual National
Sorry Day. National Reconciliation Week kicks off the following day
and runs through to 3 June.
These occasions mark the anniversaries of significant historical
events for Aboriginal people in Australia, remembering the Stolen
Generations on 26 May, the defining 1967 referendum on 27 May and the
landmark Mabo decision on 3 June, through which we recognise and
promote our ongoing commitment to Reconciliation in Australia, which
paves the way for the accomplishments of Aboriginal people today. TAFE
NSW is extremely proud to showcase some of the remarkable achievements
in Aboriginal vocational education and training every year at the Gili Awards.
