Diversity and Inclusion was the theme at this year’s annual Regional Student Health and Wellbeing Conference. This much anticipated annual event, is proudly hosted by GOTAFE and provides students from across the region the opportunity to explore study options and career opportunities in the health industry.

Students from GOTAFE’s health, community services and sport & recreation programs heard from keynote speakers and had the opportunity to participate in panel sessions and workshops throughout the day.

A highlight of the day was hearing from GOTAFE Board member and Commissioner for Gender and Sexuality, Ro Allen. Ro has been a member of three Victorian Government LGBTIQ ministerial advisory groups, and was the founding CEO of Uniting. Ro established Victoria’s first rural support group for young LGBTQI people.

Local identity, Natarsha Bamblett, football player for Richmond, and Fajer Humoud also spoke at the event.

GOTAFE CEO Travis Heeney said, “Events like this allow us to collaborate with the health and community services industry to ensure we prepare students with the skills they need through the training we provide at GOTAFE. It also provides students the opportunity to explore career options and see what further study options are available.”

The conference also raised funds for GV Pride Inc. GV Pride is Greater Shepparton’s LGBTIQA+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, queer, asexual plus other gender and sexuality diverse) social & peer-support group.
