19th ISANA Victoria State Conference 2018

On Friday 7th September ISANA VIC/TAS held its 19th State Conference with the theme “Opportunity and Innovation: Industry Professionals Supporting International Students”.

The day started off with an early networking breakfast that allowed delegates to introduce themselves and their work to fellow professionals from the industry. The first session for the day highlighted the need for self-care and take-aways that they could adopt in their everyday life. The concurrent sessions provided an opportunity to see and hear from many diverse presenters on multitude of topics including, but not limited to, gambling in the Asian context, student orientation, how to support LGBTQI students, mental health and sexual violence. Each of the sessions were presented by experienced professionals to increase the mindfulness into relevant matters of today. Delegates also got to put their creative side to use with a mural painting workshop as a part of the team building activity. The last session was a powerful student performance that put into focus what international students face in their lives and how important it is to support them and the people working with them. Throughout, delegates had numerous opportunities to interact with like-minded people and enrich their professional circle. At the end of it all, delegates were able to carry with them ideas and notions that they could reflect upon and adopt in their day to day working lives.
