The Shared Responsibility of Reconciliation
We are in an era of upheaval and transformation, a soft revolution in not only the acknowledgment of the injustices of colonization, but in reconciling those injustices and setting a new table for equality.
Research and human experience tell us that until control is in the hands of the people who are being impacted, they will remain “controlled”. Reconciliation and self-determination require that First Nations need to be in control of governing their destiny, according to their Indigenous Knowledge.
Each of us can play a role in achieving reconciliation by examining what paradigms we hold and how they affect our attitudes and behaviour toward Indigenous people. What actions can we take in our lives and in our work to close the divide between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people? How can we get engaged in collaborative decision making and inclusion?
In the fifth episode of our Insights for Action webinar series, join professor Dr. Charles Krusekopf and RRU MBA alumni Dr. Hope Sanderson for this interactive session. Hope recently completed a research project examining the role of Indigenous governance in solving the water problems on First Nations. Hope will explore how her research and lifetime of working to empower indigenous communities offers a path toward reconciliation that everyone in Canada can join.
We encourage you to register even if you are unable to attend as everyone who registers will receive a link to the webinar recording.
