Recognizing MMIWG and the Strength of Indigenous Women (CTE7013)

Tuesday, April 25, 2023 11:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT

Location: Online, MS Teams

Facilitator: Jessica Rumboldt (Centre for Teaching Excellence)


Join Jessica Rumboldt (Educational Developer, Indigenous Languages) from the Centre for Teaching Excellence to gather and learn during the week before the National Day of Awareness for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women. This workshop will begin with a presentation of relevant data, MMIWG policy, legislation, and recommendations for a path forward. The second part of the workshop will move away from discussing only a deficit model and encourage participants to recognize the strength and resilience of Indigenous women. The second part of this workshop will include a space for discussion and meaningful engagement through a unique "She Is Indigenous" activity.
