The Clever Country – Equity Fellowship Symposium roundup

2017 Equity Fellow Louise Pollard’s Fellowship Symposium was held at UWA last month, in conjunction with her final Advisory Group meeting. Over 110 people attended the Symposium that featured Professor Sally Kift, Professor Steven Larkin, Dr Paul Corcoran, Tim Shanahan, Sue Trinidad and Tyson McEwan, and was Chaired by Professor Grady Venville.

‘The Clever Country: The importance of investing in regional and remote students’ was a great success, with speakers’ presentations followed by active group discussion. Some highlights of the symposium included a warm and thought-provoking Welcome to Country delivered by Professor Len Collard, and an inspiring speech from UWA Guild Welfare Officer and student Tyson McEwan.

The event was live-Tweeted with many of our valued colleagues joining the conversation:
