As part of the year-long Stauffer@25 celebration, the Queen's University Library is hosting a Stauffer@25 Speaker Series that explores Indigenous topics and themes, as well as the evolution of the library's knowledge environment in the context of equity, diversity, and inclusion. The Speaker Series is generously funded by the Stauffer Foundation. 

The second speaker in the series is Queen’s alumnus David Sharpe (Law’95), who is a Mohawk and a member of the Mohawks of the Bay of Quinte (Tyendinaga). Sharpe holds an MBA from Richard Ivey School of Business, Western University, and is chief executive officer of Bridging Finance Inc., which provides small- and medium-sized North American companies with alternative financing options and is one of the only bridge lenders in Canada to First Nations and Inuit communities for infrastructure projects. Sharpe is chair emeritus of First Nations University of Canada, and was a member of the Board of Governors for many years and served as board chair. Sharpe is a member of the Board of Trustees at Queen’s University and is vice-chair of the Dean’s Council at Queen’s Faculty of Law.

In this lecture titled Bridging Worlds, Sharpe will explore his life working and living in different spheres, and his mission to empower Indigenous communities.
