Kadi Taylor and Anna McLeod from Navitas were presented with Champions of Council of International Students Australia (CISA) awards in recognition for their contribution and support of international students. The awards were presented at this year’s CISA conference held in Canberra in early July.

A delegation of staff and student representatives from across Navitas attended the conference, which included engaging innovative state government sessions, a focus on professional development for attendees and a strong sense of sector support.

On behalf of our Navitas Professional Careers & Internships team, Anna delivered a career development workshop to more than 50 attendees. The workshop received an overwhelming response from attendees, wanting to learn more of our employability expertise.

Helen Zimmerman, Navitas Director of Corporate Affairs, joined other industry leaders (from IEAAEnglish Australia and TAFE) in a panel discussion about the future of international education in Australia. Set in the magical surroundings of the Old Parliament Senate, this discussion was a clear favourite for student attendees, who left inspired by the line-up of esteemed education professionals.

Another highlight was the performance of Navitas Professional alumnus and musician, Minh Tuan Duong, who launched a CD at the Gala Dinner. He plans to donate all profits from the CD to support international student victims of crime.

Congratulations to Kadi and Anna for their awards and to everyone involved in making this event such a success.

Formed in 2010, the Council of International Students Australia (CISA) is recognized as the national peak student representative organization for all international students in Australia. CISA is a not-for profit, non-politically and non-commercially aligned organization formed in response to the needs among international students for a unified voice. More information can be found at
