ICS reveals First Nations' guest speakers for the 2018 Indigenous Domestic Violence Conference
ICS is offering end of financial year 2-for-1 registration for its 2018 Indigenous STOP Domestic Violence Conference and 2018 Indigenous Child Safety & Protection Conference on the 9th -11th July 2018.
This year's featured keynote speakers are Aunty Beverly Johnson of Brisbane Murri Elders Community Justice Group, Acting Senior Sergeant Stephen Tillett & Detective Senior Constable Tod Dodson of Cairns Child Protection and Investigation Unit, Thy Meddick & Ruby Awram of The National Workforce Centre for Child Mental Health, Josephine Cashman of Big River Consulting, Emma Buxton-Namisnyk of Australian Domestic and Family Violence Death Review Network, Di Gipey of Alice Springs Women's Shelter, Nadia Shuttleworth of Australian Bureau of Statistics, Jenna Woods of Murdoch University, Chris Boyle of Communities in Sync, Dr Colette Mortreux of Social Research Centre amongst others.
Similarly, the overwhelming interests in the post-conference masterclasses facilitated by STARS Institute of Learning & Leadership and DV Alert Lifeline Australia clearly indicates the deep interests of individuals and support workers assisting victims of family violence to improve their skills in handling critical and complex issues associated with domestic violence affecting First Nations families. With this in mind, we have great pleasure in announcing the high calibre of keynote speakers and great depth of workshop presenters from First Nations speakers from within Indigenous communities and experts from throughout Australia. Furthermore, ICS is in collaboration with White Ribbon and Bravehearts to bring value-added networking opportunities for delegates.
It is so pleasing to see both government and non-government organisations partnering, participating and sharing knowledge & strategies in an atmosphere conducive to stimulating new ideas within communities. Australia has a wealth of talent in our Indigenous communities all striving to further enhance the quality of life and wellbeing nationwide. It just goes to show we do not have to re-invent the wheel to succeed which goes with the philosophy of both conferences of strength through interagency cooperation at a local, state and national level. We encourage anyone interested in attending the conference to complete the online registration form before the 30th of June as registration numbers are filling fast. Moreover, if you wish to be part of the State of Origin, please contact us as we only have 10 tickets left.
