April 30, Session 2: Decolonizing
In this session members will engage in conversations around colonialism at many levels. Colonialism systemically permeates education, media, government policy and our whole society. Creating awareness is essential to understanding alternative value systems and how we are complicit by inaction. Decolonization demands a close look at Indigenous perspectives, ways of knowing and being and making change in our personal and professional lives.
