Event Wrap-Up: Indigenous Leadership Conference – Remote Indigenous Youth Leadership Summit

About the conference

The WCE team was involved in the planning and delivery of the 2016 Indigenous Leaders Conference (provide hyperlink to website) facilitated by CDU. More than 280 people gathered in Darwin on the 10th and 11th of November to explore and debate the conference theme 'engagement and the power of choice'. There were multiple presentations, workshops and panel discussions facilitated by the WCE team, including many involving our remote community-based staff. This demonstrates WCE's strong commitment to collective action and partnership development. This provided a timely opportunity for WCE to report on key findings, actions and outcomes from our work over the last two and a half years. This included presentations about community engagement, mentoring, metaphor use, educational leadership and governance, adult LLN, and remote education research processes and achievements. Importantly, we also supported more than 30 youth from WCE communities to attend and learn from the conference, as strong and aspiring education leaders and advocates in their respective communities (provide hyperlink to youth summit). This also provided an opportunity for intergenerational learning.
