- diversity of students
- diversity of teachers and their career paths
- diversity of our school communities across Queensland
- diversity of pathways into teaching, and
- diversity of thought about education.
Contributing to the discussion will be:
- Karen Martin, Associate Professor, School of Education and Professional Studies, Griffith University and Deputy Chair: Griffith University Human Research Ethics Committee
- Dale Murray, Director National Flexible Learning Services, Youth+ National Network and member of the Edmund Rice Education Australia Executive Leadership Team
