Walking Together in Reconciliation
With the passage of UNDRIP at the Federal level and DRIPA in BC, both law and expectations around engaging with Indigenous communities has changed. This on-demand program taps into valuable insights on how these changes affects the Private Sector*.

Featuring three guest speakers, conversations ranged from the inclusion of Indigenous issues in environmental, social and corporate governance, to the representation and recruitment of Indigenous peoples on corporate boards and senior management. There is also discussion about the need for a wealth management regime, changes to financial, corporate and securities legislation as well as changes to financial regulation.

*This session is suitable and designed to deliver value for attendants in the private sector, public sector, and other practitioners.
