IEU(SA) Women’s Professional Learning Day
A large group of IEU women members, from a cross-section of school sectors and cultures, spent the last Friday of the October term break taking advantage of 6 hours of free professional learning and networking (not forgetting the great coffee and food from the staff at Marcellina’s).
The line-up of speakers was exceptional.
The professional learning day began with a Zoom Presentation by IEU Queensland/Northern Territory Branch Organisers, Carol Rosser and Elise Cuthbertson, on gender issues and women’s safety in the workplace. It was an insightfhttps://ieuqnt.org.au/ul presentation starting with children’s perceptions of gender roles and stereotypes in their school.
This was followed by Allegra Stock, an audiologist who presented and talked about effective ways to support a teacher’s most essential tool, their voice.
Elaine Santos from NGS Super took the group through to the lunch break with a succinct and informative look at the superannuation landscape and what NGS could offer its members.
The final presentation of the day was from Madhavi Nawana Parker (pictured below – presenting), who runs a consultancy Positive Minds, and has worked extensively with children and teachers to foster their well-being. She has also written extensively on the topic and was an engaging presenter on a fundamentally important subject.
All attendees received a certificate of attendance for professional learning and an IEU memo book with pen.
Members should keep watch in Class Action and our electronic Direct Mail (eDMs) for future PL opportunities.
