IT Graduate involved in multicultural mentoring program

News calendar icon  17 October 2018

We are proud to congratulate Imran Thaggard, our 2017 IT Graduate.

Imran participated as a mentor to one of Queensland’s young refugees as part of the Public Service Commission’s GradConnect – Mentor program.

Over the last 6 months, Imran volunteered to mentor one of Multicultural Development Australia’s (MDA) talented and motivated refugee clients, passionate about giving back to the community.

Celebration of the completion of the program was held at 1 William Street last Thursday, giving all participating Queensland Government graduates and their supervisors, an opportunity to meet these inspiring young refugees and hear their incredible stories of resilience.

It has been rewarding to witness the mentees' confidence grow as their relationship with their mentors strengthened. In return for their time and career advice, our mentors have made new friends and developed leadership and interpersonal skills, while learning about the diverse perspectives in Queensland's community!
