About the design
In Anishinaabe and some other Indigenous communities, the strawberry is an important plant that is representative of community and love. Here, the blossom of the strawberry is shown to represent new growth within the community.
Our logo also features a wild rose, a hardy flower that symbolizes resilience and beauty. The rose is supporting and lifting up the strawberry blossom, which symbolizes how Indigenous Workways uses strong foundations to lift up and support Indigenous alumni and students.
