We are excited to announce that Dr. Bonnie Patterson, Senior Academic Advisor at KBRS, will give the keynote address. We will have a panel on diversity strategies and disruptions from Ms. Martha Mathurin-Moe, Dr. Don AhnAhnsisi McIntyre, and Dr. Leroy Little Bear. Finally, we will close our conference with a thought-provoking presentation by Dr. Michael Mahon, President and Vice-Chancellor of the University of Lethbridge. We are planning an exciting number of sessions and invite you, and your leadership teams to attend.

We will not be hosting a formal banquet as part of the conference. You are free to enjoy time with your colleagues and experience all that Victoria has to offer.
