Panel Discussion: Why Indigenize? A national student perspective on business education

Why Indigenize?  A national student perspective on business education

Date:  May 16, 2016
Time: 4:30pm
Location: SB100, Shannon School of Business, CBU Campus

There is a growing movement across Canada for the Indigenization of post-secondary education, partly in response to the 94 recommendations emerging from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.  At the same time, some university professors and instructors may be struggling with what it means to Indigenize courses, why it’s necessary, or if it’s even possible.  Isn’t business just business?

On Monday, May 16th at 4:30pm, you’ll have the opportunity to learn first-hand from Aboriginal students from across Canada about their experiences in business degree programs, what they felt was missing from their course content, and why Indigenizing business education in post-secondary institutions is critical.  The Purdy Crawford Chair in Aboriginal Business Studies has gathered four current and former business students to participate in a panel discussion, led by Dr. Keith G. Brown titled Why Indigenize? A national student perspective on business education.  The panel will be held in SB100 of the Shannon School of Business at Cape Breton University.

Please join us for this important discussion.
