November 15, 2021 @ 8:30 am - 9:30 am

This event will be online. Registration is required.

Join Scott Keesey and John Carson in a discussion about why First Nations Reconciliation is an important part of their business proposition, and how they are working with Indigenous Partner IRP to approach building First Nations allyship into their corporate culture.

About DiscoVelo:

We are a social enterprise focused on the development of software designed to accompany traditional fitness equipment like stationary bicycles. The software will promote emotional regulation, creativity, learning, and healing for a wide end-user cross-section – starting with classrooms.

About IRP:

After twenty years of working in the North and the past 2 decades working on reconciliation across sectors Davida and Tosh are ready to share what they have learned and use this knowledge to support other organizations in responding to the TRC’s 94 calls to action and supporting Indigenous self-determination.

Both founders are from the Yukon and are strong First Nations women who have a track record of creating the systemic change in organizations needed for reconciliation to actually occur. Tosh and Davida have an extensive network across the Yukon, and nationally across post-secondary institutions. They have built a distinct reputation for working with organizations and Indigenous communities to design and implement projects that move the bar on reconciliation forward.
