How the resource benefits Orginizations:

We are what we teach
The themes and narrative arc of our unit follow First Nations principles, and were drawn according to directives from our Indigenous Advisory Circle. Organizations and their workforce will benefit from our ability to establish a network between participating organizations and First Nations communities. This in turn will enable employees to ground their learning experience in the First Nations territories and communities that surround them.
The Indigenous Advisory Circle participates in key executive decisions for both the resources and the campaign. The circle is grounded at the center of Canada's oldest Indigenous-controlled education centre: the First Nations University of Canada.
