Centre for Kinesiology - CK 122 - Gym 1
A special open session organized by the Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences, in collaboration with the Canadian Association for Social Work Education (CASWE) and the Canadian Political Science Association (CPSA).
This workshop engages scholarly associations in a conversation among peers on the role that humanities and social science disciplines can play in advancing reconciliation in post-secondary education and in society more broadly. How can associations engage with their membership and across other disciplines to advance the TRC calls to action? What can associations learn from each other and what is the way forward? This session showcases the experiences of CASWE and CPSA in building plans of actions for advancing reconciliation. Participants will be able to engage in critical exchanges, including sharing successes, challenges and ideas for the future to help answer the question “what can associations do?”
The objectives of the workshop are to help widen the dialogue among member associations on the roles and obligations of scholarly associations in advancing reconciliation, to generate interest and information about the possibilities for developing plans of action and strategies to implement them, and to identify ways to support associations in this endeavour.
