On Tuesday 29 March, AIEF Ambassador Matt Comyn hosted the annual AIEF Ambassador Briefing at the Commonwealth Bank in Sydney. We were delighted to be able to gather again in person after several years without the event due to the ongoing impact of Covid.
At the 2022 Briefing, AIEF Executive Director Andrew Penfold updated AIEF Ambassadors, Board, Nation Changers Syndicate members and key partners on AIEF’s progress and key achievements over a challenging few years.
AIEF Alumni Mitchell Hertiage (Tertiary Graduate, 2015) and Kyh Samuelsson (Knox Grammar School, 2021) attended the event along with AIEF-BHP Tertiary Scholarship Student Marcus Valastro and AIEF Scholarship Student Indi Tishler. The students and alumni spoke about the impact of receiving a scholarship, the ripple effect of their educational journeys and their hopes for the future.
AIEF is privileged to have the support of a large network of distinguished Ambassadors who have achieved success and prominence in their respective fields and act as passionate advocates for Indigenous education and continue to champion AIEF and the work we do.
