Towards a Deeper Understanding

CURRENT WORKSHOP: AN INTRODUCTION TO INDIGENOUS/SETTLER RELATIONS

Your Global Engagement Team will be providing a series of workshops over the next year called “Towards a Deeper Understanding“, covering topics such as intercultural competency, indigenous settler relations, anti-racism, and more. These workshops will serve as introductions to these topics and will include work sourced from topical experts, guest speakers, and resources for further learning.

 

The first workshop in this series is An Introduction to Indigenous/Settler Relations.

This workshop will have three 90 minute sessions over three weeks. It will include two guest speakers, group discussion, reflection questions, and a 1hr-long documentary viewing (required work before the first session). This workshop is limited to 30 people.

DATES: April 15th, April 22nd, and April 29th, all 3:00 – 4:30pm EST.
Participants must commit to attending and actively participating in all three sessions.

For more information, contact Daryl Stogryn.
