01 Hallmarks with Ari Moore & Trina Jorre de St Jorre
Deakin Hallmarks are prestigious University awards designed to give Deakin students an edge in the employment market. They are co-developed with industry and professional bodies to ensure that they reward capabilities and warrant achievement that is prized in the workplace.
The Deakin Hallmark for Leadership Excellence was developed with Bendigo Community Bank and non-for-profit University to Community (U2C) Inc. to recognise Deakin students who use their leadership skills to contribute to communities through sustained and effective leadership.
To achieve the Hallmark students must submit a digital portfolio, written reflection and video pitch providing compelling evidence of having met the Hallmark standards, including their ability to lead diverse people and projects, and evidence of personal and social impact through leadership.
Trina: Ari submitted an impressive portfolio of leadership activities, drawing on peer mentoring and student representative roles, and promotion of youth-focussed initiatives during an internship at the Parliament of Victoria, amongst other achievements.
External panel members commended Ari on the high standard of her application, breadth of engagement and “commitment to making a difference”.
Trina: Ari will receive a digital credential that validates her achievement and can be shared publically through professional platforms such as LinkedIn. Her award will also be formally recognised on her statement of academic achievement at graduation.
