Indigenous Participation: Key to Success of Manitoba’s Future Economy

Tuesday, February 28, 2017
343 Drake Centre, Asper School of Business

Did you know that employers increasingly seek individuals with cross-cultural knowledge of Indigenous culture and history? Graduates with a deep understanding of Indigenous history and contemporary issues are at a distinct advantage in their job search.

Join us for an informative discussion with business, community and government leaders with expertise in Indigenous business and community engagement as we explore the opportunities that lay ahead in building a strong Manitoba.

Why is Indigenous Engagement Important for Future Business Leaders?

  • More indigenous people live in Winnipeg than in any other city in Canada
  • Employers are looking for individuals with cross-cultural knowledge of Indigenous culture and history
  • Canada plans to invest $8.4 billion over the next 5 years to improve the socio-economic conditions of Indigenous peoples and their communities
  • Risk mitigation: companies that fail to properly engage with Indigenous communities are limiting opportunities for success

Who should attend?

All U of M students, faculty and staff are invited to attend.
