In August 2011, three Indigenous students from St Catherines School, Waverley, were invited to the CBD office of AIEFs corporate partner, the international law firm Allens Arthur Robinson. Over a casual boardroom lunch with Chief Executive Partner Michael Rose and senior staff of the law firm, the students had a chance to ask questions about career opportunities in the legal field.
Food for Thought is a series of boardroom luncheons bringing Indigenous students together with CEOs and senior managers of AIEFs corporate partners to build their networking skills. It is part of the AIEF Post-School Pathways Program, which offers a wide range of work-readiness activities and support to help students transition from school into further study and careers. The aim of the program is to inform them about career options and provide one-on-one support to develop and achieve their career goals.
