The Faculty of Law and the Faculty of Arts are hosting a recorded panel discussion on the topic of diversity, equality and inclusion (EDI) with special focus on Indigenous peoples’ rights. This event takes place a day before Orange Shirt Day (30 September).
Our panelists will explore Indigenous rights in Canada and the role academia can play in informing EDI policies. What has been done? What can be done? And how it can be done? are only a few of the questions that will be explored.
