Indigenous Gathering on Pathways in Business is a knowledge-sharing gathering that will explore career pathways and applications of business, finance, and accounting for BC’s Indigenous community members, youth, and students. The event aims to create an opportunity for dialogue, and to introduce and create excitement for career options that build community wellbeing, sustainability, and long-term economic prosperity. This event will also appeal to Indigenous community members looking to bring business or finance services to their community.

CPABC is privileged to be planning this event in collaboration with the following partners:

Traditional Council Indigenous Post-Secondary Industry
Organizations Institutions
Darlene McIntosh, Aboriginal Financial Capilano University D&H Group LLP
Lheidli T’enneh Elder Officers Association BC Simon Fraser University MNP LLP
Maureen Thomas, First Nations Financial University of British PwC
Knowledge Keeper Management Board
Sandi Hendry, Métis Métis Nation BC Vancouver Island

Indigenous Gathering on Pathways in Business will be hosted on the virtual platform Hopin, and the agenda includes a panel and plenary discussions, breakout rooms, and a Resource Centre for event guests. To ensure a safe sharing space for Indigenous participants, all moderators, speakers, and panelists will be Indigenous, and certain sessions will be held for Indigenous guests only. All event guests must be 18 years or older due to privacy considerations.

To participate in the Resource Centre as an exhibitor, organizations must be providing educational programs/certifications, funding sources, or other services specifically for Indigenous communities and/or students. Prior to the event there will be a mandatory orientation webinar for exhibitors to discuss the agenda, best practices for virtual booth set up, and protocols for Indigenous community engagement.

If your organization would be interested in highlighting this gathering to Indigenous audiences through social media, posting information, and/or email distribution, or would like to host a free virtual booth in the Resource Centre, please contact Lorena Christensen, Director, Student Recruitment and Employer Relations at [email protected]. Resource Centre participants must complete the following online application.
