A Fundraising Professional's Reconciliation Journey: Learning to be an Ally
Thursday, October 27, 2022
12:00pm  1:00pm
Via Zoom

Following the inaugural Truth & Reconciliation Day in September 2021, many of us identified the opportunities for learning and developing a greater understanding of how we, as fundraising professionals, contribute to delivering on the Truth and Reconciliation Commission 94 Calls to Action.

AFP Central Ontario invites all its members to a safe, welcoming space for learning and open dialogue as we continue to move Truth & Reconciliation forward.

AFP Central Ontario invites you to connect, learn, and expand your journey of knowledge. Facilitated by Rebbeca Truax,  MBA, CFRE, Associate Vice-President & Campaign Director, External Relations, Lakehead University, a 25+ year fundraising executive works through a real-time workplace scenario of leading philanthropic initiatives impacting indigenous communities.

This virtual session will be a roundtable format, encouraging dialogue from all attendees as we learn together.

Attendees can expect to:
- Gain an understanding of how Lakehead University remains committed to Truth and
  Reconciliation in Canada and stands in solidarity with Indigenous peoples everywhere.
- Discuss and identify your role as a fundraising professional and your journey in being an ally in
 indigenous initiatives.
- Equity, Diversity & Inclusion  what does this mean and how do you support your team when you
 dont have all the answers? What credible resources are available

Upon registration, please tell us:
1.What EDI fundraising initiatives are your organization supporting?
2.What worries or invigorates you about your learning journey?
3.What resources have you found valuable that you would like to share with your fundraising colleagues?
