Diversity, Equity and Indigenous Lens
Confederation College’s Diversity, Equity and Indigenous Lens is a tool that will help ensure Confederation’s policies, programs and practices are free of elements that knowingly or unknowingly enable the exclusion of Indigenous peoples. The Lens is built upon a common understanding of the colonial history of Canada and seeks to provide best practices, resources and specific guidance for employees of Confederation College to ensure Indigenous perspectives and Ways of Knowing are incorporated and accurately reflected across institutional systems.

- We are pleased to share this work with our partners and communities as a model that can be adapted to meet each organization’s unique situation and needs. We ask that those on a similar path who incorporate elements of our Lens share their learnings and success with us so we may collectively advance our efforts towards decolonization (email@example.com)
