AUDIENCE: K-12 Educators, Leadership, and Support Staff
Join this 2-part discussion webinar series to support and promote a learning environment where diversity is embraced as we provide opportunities for all to learn about Indigenous ways of knowing, being, doing and relating. We will explore the concept of allyships and being good allies in our classrooms and school communities. In this conversation-based series we will engage in conversations using these guiding questions.
The series will have elders and leaders in Indigenous education as part of this conversation.
