Fraynework named ‘Best Private Sector Employer’ of Aboriginal People in Wurreker Awards

The Victorian Aboriginal Education Association Incorporated (VAEAI) in partnership with the Department of Education and Training annually recognise and celebrate the progress achieved under the Wurreker strategy – The Victorian Aboriginal community and TAFE in equal partnership.  The Wurreker Awards acknowledge and celebrate Aboriginal individuals and organisations that have achieved outstanding results in their chosen areas of knowledge and expertise.


On Thursday August 24, at the VAEAI Wurreker Awards, an annual event attended by over 300 nominees and invited guests, Fraynework Multimedia, a ministry of the Sisters of Mercy, Melbourne Congregation, was awarded the Private Sector Employer Award.


This award acknowledges a private sector employer of Victorian Aboriginal people able to demonstrate innovation in employment and training of Indigenous people. It is a prestigious award given by the Aboriginal community and the state government. Fraynework’s citation focussed on our employment of three young Aboriginal men, our training program in the Indigital Centre for young Aboriginal men and women to record and share their stories through music and art and our involvement with the wider Aboriginal community in a range of projects. For further details about the Indigital Centre program visit the Indigital Centre website.
