About the event
We are thrilled to invite you to our upcoming September Membership Meeting, where we will have the distinct honour of hosting a very special guest speaker, Heather Watt, from the Gord Downie & Chanie Wenjack Fund. Join us as we delve into a crucial conversation about Truth and Reconciliation and the incredible work undertaken by the Fund.
Heather Watt, Director of Education at the Fund, will lead us through an enlightening discussion about the importance of acknowledging the truths of the past and the path to reconciliation. The Gord Downie & Chanie Wenjack Fund has been at the forefront of promoting awareness, education, and action toward reconciliation, carrying on the legacy of two remarkable individuals who have become symbols of hope and change in Canada.
During our meeting, Heather will share valuable insights into the initiatives and projects that the Fund has been spearheading, shedding light on the positive impact they are making in Indigenous communities and across the nation. Furthermore, she will explore practical ways that organizations like ours can actively embrace ReconciliActions, ensuring that the process of reconciliation becomes an integral part of our core values and practices.
This is an exceptional opportunity for all our members to gain a deeper understanding of Truth and Reconciliation and learn how we can collectively contribute to building a more inclusive and harmonious society. Together, we can take meaningful steps towards healing the wounds of the past and creating a brighter future for all.
