He said the company would like to see greater diversity in its workforce and hopes to have 50% of the 2019 program intake of trainees to be women. 
 
The program takes in about 160 people every year.
 
"While we currently have some very talented female employees across a range functions… females are under-represented and we are missing this talent," he said.
 
"(And) of the 36 apprentices who are graduating today, only two are female."
 
A total of 39 people received their credentials - 36 apprentices and three Preferred Area Recruits - during the ceremony.
