On April 25, 2019 from 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM EST, join us for Truth, Ethics and Reconcili-Action: Growing Indigenous-Campus Engagement and Community-Driven Research in Canada.

Presented by CFICE and Community-Campus Engage Canada, in collaboration with the National Association of Friendship Centres and the Centre for the Study of Educational Leadership and Policy (CSELP), this webinar explores answers to the guiding question How do we grow impactful Indigenous-Campus engagement and ethical research in Canada to better support indigenous community health and well being?

The webinar will feature the work and vision of four Indigenous women working in community-campus engagement. Two Professors from Saskatchewan and British Columbia and two community leaders from the National Association of Friendship Centres in Ottawa will focus on ethical research, Indigenous knowledges, equitable partnerships and how higher education and other Canadian allies can collectively support Indigenous community health and well being. They will explore the challenges they face, opportunities for the future, and specific recommendations for policy, funding, culture, and program changes.

Level: Beginner/Intermediate – Attendees do not need any prior experience or knowledge of indigenous research or community development. Check out the Urban Aboriginal Knowledge Network to learn more about the topic: www.uakn.org
