Professionals, organizations and community members looking to enhance their Indigenous knowledge will soon have new options available through Brock University.
On Thursday, Oct. 12, the Hadiyaˀdagénhahs First Nations, Métis and Inuit Student Centre, the Office of the Vice-Provost, Indigenous Engagement, and Brock University Professional and Continuing Studies (PCS) will launch new Indigenous programming with an event hosted for the Brock and wider Niagara community.
Hadiyaˀdagénhahs and PCS have collaborated to bring existing and new learning opportunities of Indigenous teaching to the public as part of Brock’s Continuing Education and Professional Development programming. The learning opportunities are intended for anyone interested in deepening their knowledge of Canadian Indigenous culture and practices to create a more inclusive workplace and community.
Programming details will be available following next week’s event.
The Indigenous programming launch will take place at Pond Inlet from noon to 3:30 p.m. All members of the community are invited to register on the Brock PCS website. Tickets are $49, which includes learning from Indigenous leaders, a hot lunch, two guest talks on Indigenous leadership and Inuit culture and insights, plus a ‘Table Talk’ discussion on workplace practices that are inclusive for Indigenous Peoples, observance of ceremonies and more.
Proceeds from the ticket sales will be dedicated to Indigenous student scholarship opportunities.
Individuals interested in attending the launch event are asked to register by Tuesday, Oct. 10. Questions can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org
