This year the ILE team at EREA wanted to bring together Identity Leaders across the country to explore the future of Identity Leadership. Culminating in the National UnConference, the overarching themes and lessons of this gathering can be found in the Executive Summary of 2018 EREA Identity Leaders UnConference. Amongst many insights, the need to be in constant conversation with each other about how we shape Identity into the future is critical. Regional gatherings across the country this term will provide time for Identity Leaders to reflect on the Executive Summary and to identify possible projects that can keep the conversation alive.
We acknowledge the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples of Australia as the traditional owners and custodians of the land of our schools. We are inspired and nurtured by their wisdom, spirituality and experience. We commit ourselves to actively
work alongside them for reconciliation and justice. We pay our respects to the Elders; past, present and future. As we take our next step we remember the first footsteps taken on this sacred land.
