Indigenous Workways

Indigenous Workways is the lab’s newest knowledge sharing initiative. We have engaged in conversation with practitioners, community members, and academics on issues facing Indigenous youth in the workplace at a Roundtable at the 2015 Canadian Psychological Association, a 2016 two-day Knowledge Sharing event at Vancouver Island University – Cowichan Campus (funded by a SSHRC Connections Grant), and a presentation at the 2016 CANDO(Council for the Advancement of Native Development Officers) Annual meetings. 

Currently, we are working with Aboriginal Education Centres at four Southwest Ontario post-secondary institutions to create opportunities for Indigenous alumni and students to share their stories about work.
