The OPSEU Indigenous Circle invites you to submit your application for the 2016 Indigenous Conference! We welcome all members motivated by OPSEU's call for healing and reconciliation with Indigenous communities.
The Conference theme is “Reconciling with Indigenous communities: OPSEU's response to the Truth and Reconciliation Report.” The goal is to inspire and educate OPSEU members to respond to the Recommendations of the Truth and Reconciliation Report. The Conference is being planned with the elders and youth of the Mohawk Nation of Akwesasne. Participants will be equipped with the necessary tools and knowledge to effectively network with Indigenous members within and beyond the Indigenous Circle on various projects and campaigns. We expect participants will be able to identify recommendations of the Truth and Reconciliation Report that connect to the work of OPSEU members and be inspired by traditional indigenous cultures to take action.
Event participants will be selected by the Indigenous Circle with assistance from the Equity Unit. The selection process seeks to achieve a diverse group of attendees, representative of Indigenous and other equity groups within our membership. Confirmation will be issued to the selected participants in early August.
Do not miss this opportunity to network, learn, share experiences and have some fun. Please submit your completed application by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or fax to the Equity Unit no later than midnight, July 15, 2016. Please note that we will be using an anonymous selection process and will be applying the criteria as set out on pages 4 and 5 of this application. Incomplete applications will not be considered.
