On 8 December 2020, members of the research team (BJ Newton, Megan Blaxland and Jen Skattebol) gave a presentation as part of the Social Policy Research Centre seminar series. The research team shared the recent changes to the code of conduct within the Australian Association for Research in Education (AARE) and an update to submission process for future conferences and events held by AARE, which requires all presenter to ‘give an account of who they are and how they work with Indigenous peoples and matters’. We discussed this in relation to our Engaging Families in Early Education project and invited Professor Gawaian Bodkin-Andrews to discuss the developments at AARE so we could transfer learning from this research association to other contexts.
