BUSINESS AND RECONCILIATION: EDUCATE, REFLECT, ACT

Wednesday, March 4, 2020 12:00 noon - 2:00 pm Faculty Lounge FEBRUARY 26 - MARCH 5, 2020 & Lakehead University WEEK When we think about “creativity,” we may imagine artists/scientists conjuring up fantastic ideas that come from the depths of their inventive minds. Collectively, we connect our ideas, knowledge, and curiosity to create our realities. Using our creative mind, we focus on what exists, and strive to look at reality from different perspectives. Together we imagine, innovate, and discover ways through our research to improve our lives, and better our world.  Our Creative Mind Lakehead University Our Creative Mind Indigenous Peoples have had a long history of thriving and diverse economies throughout Turtle Island. Today, Indigenous Peoples contribute over $30 billion annually to Canada’s GDP and by 2024 this is expected to rise to $100 billion. Business reconciliation means actively promoting equal economic opportunity for all Canadians, as outlined in the TRC Call to Action 92. (ccab, 2019, https://www.ccab.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/Businessreconciliation-i... nal_AA.pdf)

A panel discussion focusing on Indigenous Business and the role that business can play in building capacity within the Indigenous business sector and the role that business relationships can have in the reconciliation process. Panelists have a range of business experiences including: technical consulting, Indigenous entrepreneurship and Indigenous business advising and development. The Panel is as a co-event between the Faculty of Business Administration, Work-Integrated Learning at Lakehead and Aboriginal Initiatives.
