Following their graduation from Tigerair's Cabin Crew Ground School last week, the airline’s newest Indigenous Cabin Crew members helped unveil our Indigenous Round jerseys ahead of Sunday's clash with the Bulldogs.
Tigerair - the official airline of Melbourne Storm - has partnered with the club to auction off the 17 match worn jerseys with all proceeds going to the Dardi Munwurro charity which focuses on Indigenous family violence support.
Last week Tigerair celebrated the graduation of six new crew members who identify as Indigenous.
They met with Josh Addo-Carr, Scott Drinkwater, Will Chambers and Nicho Hynes to unveil the jerseys.
"We are proud to welcome our newest Indigenous cabin crew graduates to the Tigerair team," Tigerair CEO Merren McArthur said.
"We are committed to providing positive and sustainable employment outcomes for our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander workforce, to not only provide a platform for future Indigenous applicants, but also allow our workforce to reflect the community we serve and the customers that choose to fly with us each day."
Partnering with Diversity Dimensions, an organisation that specialises in employment to help provide meaningful opportunities for Indigenous and Torres Strait Islander individuals, Tigerair’s latest graduating class proved the sky really is the limit for their high-flying careers.
Graduates Igary, Charity, Jaide, Ricky, Chelsea and Jasmine successfully completed their initial training course alongside 15 other trainees at the Cabin Crew Ground School and graduated at a ceremony held at the Tigerair Headquarters in Melbourne.
