On Wednesday February 18th @ 3pm, come down to Coach House at McGill University in Montreal to hear my first ever address in the province titled “Leading By Example”. I’m pretty excited, thanks to Indigenous Access McGill & Riele Bailey for all the support.
Hosted by Indigenous Access McGill in partnership with the First Peoples House, McGill Aboriginal Outreach & Recruitment, and the Social Equity and Diversity Education Office.
Indigenous Access McGill (IAM) is an Indigenous student support program located in the McGill School of Social Work. IAM aims to promote an increased understanding of Indigenous issues, history and culture amongst the McGill community. IAM was integral in the development of the McGill interdisciplinary course- Indigenous Field Studies, which brings together students from Social Work, Medicine, Law and Anthropology during an intensive month-long summer course.
