Workshop Session 1 (Morning): Facilitated by Tricia Williams

In working with children, families, and young people, your ‘Why’ reflects your values, the values held both personally and professionally. It answers the question of why you do what you do. When connected, it brings to life your commitment and contribution to support change and guides all aspects of work with children, young people and families.

During this session, you will have the opportunity to reflect on and articulate your ‘Why’ – your contribution and commitment with a focus on what you want to achieve through your work. Unpack the values and ethics that are foundation to working with purpose!

LEad Many Countries, One Water by Chris Tobin

Titled “Many Countries, One Water”, the artwork represents the diversity and the connectedness across the communities in which we work. Reproduced with permission and gratitude.


LEAD acknowledges the traditional custodians of the land we gather and work on, and the land that you are on while visiting our website. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging, for they hold the memories, the traditions, the cultures and hopes of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples across the nation. A better understanding and respect for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures develops an enriched appreciation for Australia’s cultural heritage and can lead to reconciliation. This is essential to the maturity of Australia as a nation and fundamental to the development of an Australian identity. Understanding and respect are guiding principles of LEAD’s Reconciliation Action Plan.
