The ongoing process of truth and reconciliation between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples is an integral part of all of Minerva BC’s work. Opportunities for conversation about this process as well as the complex nature of the intersectionality of diversity will be part of the Learning to Lead™ weekend. All participants are asked to enter these conversations with an open and respectful heart and mind.
