Learn together in this five-week exploration of the guide

BU Faculty and Staff are invited to take part in a five-week, guided exploration of the Pulling Together: Manitoba Foundations Guide throughout the month of November and early December. The timing and approach to this learning opportunity was developed by surveying BU faculty and staff about their interests.

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: Friday, November 5 – December 3, 2021

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

Virtual Learning Circles with Cree Knowledge Keeper Susie McPherson-Derendy

Fridays, November 5, 12, 19, 26 & December 3
