"Build into your process milestones to assess what you’re doing and don’t be afraid to change course if your original public involvement plan is not reaching the audiences you hoped. There is nothing worse than working a plan you know isn’t solving the issue just because it’s what’s on paper." - Sabrina Colón

IAP2 December Learning Webinar
Tuesday, December 10, 2019, 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM (PDT)
Understanding History, Territory & Indigenous Identity for Inclusion
Engaging ethically with First Nations, Metis and Inuit people is about moving forward within a respectful, egalitarian and participatory process. Understanding History, Territory and Indigenous Identity for Inclusion ... a step towards reconciliation is a conversation looking at how to shift social structures of “us” and “them”, looking at history as narrative and reclaiming Indigenous voices in colonial spaces.
