Did you know that youth unemployment is at a 10 year high of 12.4 per cent?
This very issue is the basis of Generation Success, which I had the privilege of taking part in yesterday with Tracey Gavegan, our Group Executive Human Resources at Telstra.
‘Gen S’ brings together youth leaders, senior executives and government to discuss and tackle issues around youth unemployment. Around 300 people attended the breakfast including sponsors Woolworths Limited and News Corp Australia, and participating organisations Leighton Holdings, Rio Tinto, National Australia Bank, Commonwealth Bank of Australia, Toll Group, Spotless, Lend Lease, FOXTEL and Telstra. Prime Minister Tony Abbott addressed the attendees in a key note pledging the Federal Government’s support for the initiative.
