In November following our Business & Reconciliation panel discussion, we told you to expect updates and accountability as our organization learns from others and continues walking the path of reconciliation.
On December 1 we were honoured to be invited to join others walking that path. Our Executive Vice President Alana Cuma was asked to the Foresight Incubator on Indigenous Issues, a day-long conference at Thunderbird House where Indigenous organizations (First Nations, Metis, Inuit and Urban), government departments (federal, provincial, municipal), Regional Health Authorities, community-based organizations, educators and the private sector came together to update each other on their work - and look for opportunities to share our resources and strengths.
Reconciliation is a necessary, unimaginably enormous goal that begins with a simple if challenge act: building relationships. That's why your Winnipeg Chamber is pleased to participate in events like the Foresight Incubator - not as an organization in charge, but as one learning and partnering with others. We were thrilled to engage in the day's goals of
Our deep thanks go to The Aboriginal Council of Winnipeg and the International Institute for Sustainable Development for facilitating the event - we look forward to the next.
