Respectful and meaningful communications with Indigenous Peoples: An introduction for communicators SIG

  • 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
  • Online via Zoom
  • January 31, 2023

The Truth & Reconciliation Commission’s Call-to-Action #92 calls on Corporate Canada to actively engage in Reconciliation and support meaningful, mutually beneficial relationships with Indigenous Peoples in all areas of business. In this Pop-up SIG, we will have an open and safe conversation around the role corporate communicators can play in supporting these efforts. We will talk about building cultural competency and avoiding common mistakes and pitfalls. To wrap it up, you’ll be left with some practical tips and guidance on how to communicate with Indigenous audiences in respectful and meaningful ways – as well as hopefully be inspired to dive deeper into the complex topic of Reconciliation in Canada.

Corinna Bork is a forward-thinking communicator with over two decades of experience delivering inclusive brand and communications strategies for the resource, transportation, environmental, professional services and technology sector. An advocate for purpose-led organizations, Corinna is an ally to Indigenous Peoples and believes in the power of communication to advance Reconciliation.
