About The Atlantic Fellows for Social Equity 
The Atlantic Fellows for Social Equity is an Indigenous-led lifelong, collaborative fellowship program and platform for driving systemic change. Established at the University of Melbourne in 2017 and funded by The Atlantic Philanthropies in 2016, it is one of seven global, interconnected Atlantic Fellows programs. The program includes partner organisations and governments to support the work of a global network of thousands of Atlantic Fellows over the next two decades, and beyond  

About the Role 
As a tutor in the Atlantic Fellows for Social Equity (AFSE) program, you will provide one-on-one support to Fellows and be an important part of our decolonial and evidence-based approach to effective teaching and learning that privileges Indigenous knowledges and methodologies.
