U of Winnipeg: Bridging Indigenous & human rights – public invited June 19
June 05, 2018
As Canadians work to implement the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Calls to Action, many leaders in the public, private and non-profit sectors are looking for effective strategies and insights. Loretta Ross and Derek Nepinak will highlight community-driven pathways to improve leadership practices and explore different ways of knowing. This event is free and open to the public, and everyone is welcome.
WHAT: Transforming the ways we lead: bridging Indigenous & human rights
WHO: Loretta Ross and Derek Nepinak
WHEN: Tuesday, June 19 from 6:30 to 7:30 pm
(Q&A session to follow)
WHERE: Canadian Museum for Human Rights
85 Israel Asper Way at The Forks
Presented in partnership by the Canadian Museum for Human Rights and The University of Winnipeg.
Loretta Ross (Bimaashi Migizi), Treaty Relations Commissioner of Manitoba and Derek Nepinak, CEO Kanata Financial and former Grand Chief of the Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs, will share their perspectives on how leaders must initiate change in light of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Calls to Action. They will also explore Canada’s commitment to implementing the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP).
As we come to understand the histories and learn about the effects of colonization, residential schools, and their intergenerational impacts, each of us is challenged to move forward in a good way. How can we use this knowledge in a respectful way to influence leaders to make meaningful and responsible changes?
