Veris and its alliance partner Wumara Group have won the award for Workforce Development and Inclusion at the national 2023 Asia-Pacific Spatial Excellence Awards (APSEA).
The award recognised the Indigenous Surveyor Employment Pathway Program, which offers Indigenous Australian’s a pathway into the surveying industry.
Established in a collaboration between Veris, Wumara Group, TAFE NSW and the Yarpa NSW Indigenous Business & Employment Hub, the program consists of a combination of study and fieldwork to provide participants with exposure to what it’s like to be a surveyor, as well as the foundational skills to start their career in the industry.
Dylan Frank, Managing Director of Wumara Group received the award at a Gala Dinner as part of the annual Locate Conference in Adelaide.
Further to the success of the Indigenous Surveyor Employment Pathway Program, Veris’ very own Nathan Quadros, Head of Digital Strategy took home the inaugural Bruce Thompson Innovation Award.
The award celebrates the late Bruce Thompson, an outstanding leader in the Australian spatial industry and recognises an individual that has demonstrated innovation, enthusiasm and commitment, resulting in a positive impact on the industry.
Nathan is emblematic of the Bruce Thompson Award, and Veris are very proud of this significant achievement.
