National Day for Truth and Reconciliation at Desautels

Business and Reconciliation; Ethical Considerations for Equitable Sustainability

“Although the corporate sector is not a direct party to Treaty and land-claims agreement negotiations, industry and business play an extremely significant role in how the economic, social, and cultural aspects of reconciliation are addressed, including the extent to which opportunities and benefits are truly shared with Indigenous peoples and the environment of traditional homelands is safeguarded.”
Truth and Reconciliation Commission Report

September 30 is recognized across Canada as the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. To demonstrate the Desautels Faculty of Management’s alignment with the TRC’s Call to Action 92, the Desautels Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) team, in collaboration with the Laidley Centre for Business Ethics, is hosting an in-person discussion with David Carrière-Acco, Co-Owner and President of Indigenous-led Acosys Consulting. Mr. Carrière-Acco is a member of the Peter Ballantyne Cree Nation in Saskatchewan and holds an MBA (International Business Concentration), as well as graduate degrees in Marketing, eCommerce and Business Analysis.

This discussion will provide inspiration, best practices and thoughtful considerations for the many ethical questions which arise when considering business and reconciliation. We look forward to seeing you there.
