Description:

Recent actions to unlock capital for Indigenous groups, communities, and businesses have resulted in a future for Canada’s economy which invites Indigenous expertise, participation, and partnership. With an explosion of consortiums aimed at developing major infrastructure projects, commercial real estate, significant natural resource and renewable energy plays, and leading technology deployment, Indigenous-led companies are playing an increasing role in today’s economy and tomorrow’s future.

Join Smith Alumni Chapters Calgary and Vancouver for our discussion moderated by Luticia Miller, EMBA’22, CEO, NineIrons, to hear perspectives from Robert MacCuish, President & Chairmain, CanadianEagle; Brittanee Laverdure, EMBA’22, Regional VP, Indigenous Wealth; and Gillian Hynes, AMBA’17, Director, Reconciliation, Inclusion & Strategy, Rise Consulting on engagement, partnership, and some critical cultural considerations to successful collaboration.
