Theme: FNMI
Institution: Mt. Royal

Description: Through this presentation, we will share contextual information and early findings from a CACUSS-funded qualitative research project investigating Indigenous women's stories of journeying through university towards their career. By listening to the experiences of these women, we hope to better inform the work post-secondary institutions are doing to address reconciliation, indigenization, and decolonization. This project emerged from Andrea Heron's own lived experiences and desire to support other Indigenous women in their university-to-work transitions. She is an undergraduate student at Mount Royal University and has partnered here with researchers from MRU, Simon Fraser University and the University of Calgary. We look forward to sharing this journey with our ASSC colleagues.
