Acknowledgement of Country

The IGNITE Youth and Careers Expo acknowledges the traditional custodians of the land on which we meet today. We pay respect to the Elders, past and present, and extend that respect to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. We uphold Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People as Australia's first peoples and work collaboratively to support reconciliation and closing the gap.
