Learn together in this six-week exploration of the guide

BU Faculty and Staff are invited to take part in a six-week, guided exploration of the Pulling Together: Manitoba Foundations Guide throughout the months of October and November.

Each week, individuals will read through the sections of the guide and engage in related activities at their own pace, then come together as a group for broader reflection and discussion in the form of learning circles. Individuals will be invited to seek out experiences or opportunities related to the learning within their own context following the program and to come back together in a few months to share actions, successes and outcomes.
