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 April and May. The timing and approach to this learning opportunity was developed by surveying BU faculty and staff back in the fall, with additional adjustments made in response to feedback from the learning cohorts who participated these last months.

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.

Duration: Thursdays, April 21 – May 26, 2022

Week 1 – Welcome & Introduction to the program and each other
Week 2 – Section I: Intro to Indigenous Peoples
Week 3 & 4– Section II: Colonization
Week 5 – Section III: Decolonization
Week 6 – Explore next steps for continued learning and action
