Weaving Relations, a new self-paced, online training course, is now available to UBC faculty and staff. This course explores Indigenous histories, people and contexts, as well as settler colonialism in Canada, through the lens of Indigenous-Canadian relationships.
Developed jointly by the Faculty of Applied Science and the Faculty of Land and Food Systems, Weaving Relations aims to meet the goals of the Indigenous Strategic Plan, particularly action 34 to “develop and deliver Indigenous history and issues training for all faculty and staff,” as well as Faculty priorities to build inclusive leadership and respectful engagement.
Dana-Lyn Mackenzie, senior manager of equity, diversity, inclusion and Indigeneity, and a Coast Salish person from the Hwlitsum First Nation, developed the course and helped lay the foundation to help people engage more meaningfully in conversations.
