Acknowledgement of Country

We acknowledge and respect Traditional Owners across Australia as the original custodians of our land and waters, their unique ability to care for country and deep spiritual connection to it. We honour Elders past, present and emerging whose knowledge and wisdom has and will ensure the continuation of cultures and traditional practices.

Upcoming Events

Connection to Country Roundtable - Monday 13th December
Join us online during your lunchbreak to meet our new AILA SA Connection to Country Committee members and hear their plans to support SA members in 2022. Our wonderful Committee includes: Paul Harding (Chair) Jared Barnes, Grace Lin, Jo Russell-Clarke, Peter Adley and Kate James.

Since the release of AILA’s RAP in 2018 we have delivered a local program based on feedback from our members. We think it is time to reflect on all the great work our members have been doing and invite you to share new ideas for how AILA SA can continue to support both your personal and professional reconciliation journeys.
