The Awards are an initiative of the Prime Minister's Veterans' Employment Program.
Our 2020 winners and finalists are proud supporters of veteran employment or have demonstrated outstanding achievements since transitioning from the Australian Defence Force.
Each has a story to tell, so click on their profile to learn more about them.
This year’s ceremony at Parliament House to announce the Award winners was cancelled due to COVID-19 concerns. Winners across 10 award categories were announced on 15 May via an online event.
We congratulate all the finalists and winners for their exceptional leadership in demonstrating the value and ongoing contribution that our military veterans provide to our country’s workforce.
