My Privilege, My Responsibility: A Higher Calling To Do Better in an Era of Truth, Reconciliation & Redress with Sheila North

February 15, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

In commoreration of February (14th), a day to honour the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, the Office of Respectful Environments, Equity, Diversity & Inclusion at the Faculty of Medicine invites you to join our conversation with Sheila North. In this sixth session of the Indigenous Speaker Series, we will learn about the activism of Sheila North who has been working tirelessly to bring urgent attention to systemic racism faced by Indigenous women and girls. She is the creator of the widely used hashtag #MMIW – a movement that advocates for the end of violence against First Nations/ Indigenous women and girls. This important conversation with Sheila North will bring to light some of the things and actions that we need to think about as we continue to reckon with the many truths and injustices committed against Indigenous – First Nations, Inuit, Métis – girls, women, peoples, and communities.
