Indigenous Leaders Conference 2016

Indigenous Leaders Conference 2016
Friday, June 3, 2016

Our third Indigenous Leaders Conference, 'Engagement and the Power of Choice' will be held at Charles Darwin University Casuarina Campus over 2 days from 10-11 November.  This event follows the highly successful 2014 and 2015 Indigenous Leadership Conferences, which attracted over 500 NT, national and international participants.

This major event in our annual calendar creates broadened and deepened spaces of engagement for industry stakeholders to collaboratively advance quality public policies, programs and practices that address Indigenous disadvantage in the Northern Territory, particularly as relates to remote contexts.

The conference brings together a diverse range of community members, education and health workers, allied stakeholders and industry sectors to advance progressive evidence-based practice in complex socioeconomic environments. Members of the research community will also be challenged to contribute research evidence that translates policy intent to actual outcomes.

The conference is a partnership between the International Graduate Centre of Education, the Office of the Pro Vice-Chancellor Indigenous Leadership, Northern Institute, Batchelor Institute of Tertiary Indigenous Education and the Aboriginal Medical Services Alliance Northern Territory, with support from the Centre for School Leadership, the Office of Prime Minister and Cabinet, The Department of Education and the Office of Aboriginal Affairs.
