This year’s symposium topic is Transformative Engagement & Relationship Building.
The next series of posts will share bios and information on some of our speakers, including their websites, projects, interviews and videos.
Miranda Jimmy’s Twitter bio:
“Co-Founder of @RISEdmonton. Community Builder. Fierce Defender of Truth. Amplifier of #Indigenous Voices. Committed to #Reconciliation & the Treaty Relationship”
“Experienced Program Manager with a demonstrated success in the private, public, and non-profit sectors. Proven track record of project management that brings people of diverse backgrounds together to achieve a common vision. Skilled in Indigenous relations, community development, cultural competency, and public engagement.”
“The through line in all of Miranda’s work is community, which, she says, can mean a lot of different things, depending on the context. “It’s a physical location,” she says. “But it’s also a sense of belonging. Different things make people belong together: common interests, particular issues or cultural backgrounds.””
