Description

We are pleased to invite you to this year’s Indigenous Speakers Series at VIU in partnership with The Laurier Institution and CBC Radio One's Ideas.

This year’s speaker – Gabrielle Scrimshaw – will be sharing her keynote address entitled “Youth and Reconciliation - the Next 150 Years”.

Gabrielle is a member of the Hatchet Lake First Nation and is a first-generation student. She has an MBA from Stanford and is a Gleitsman Fellow at the Center for Public Leadership at Harvard University. As the co-founder of the Aboriginal Professional Association of Canada, Gabrielle is a regular contributor to Canadian media outlets and has been profiled in the New York Times and Forbes.

Gabrielle will be sharing her experiences and perspective on how Canada’s Indigenous youth are engaging in reconciliation. Using Canada's 150th Anniversary as a moment of reflection, Gabrielle will share the challenges indigenous youth face, what reconciliation looks like, and how we can engage on that journey. The keynote talk will be followed by a question and answer session hosted by Paul Kennedy of Ideas and also recorded for national broadcast on CBC Radio One's Ideas.
