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.
