Leaders as Indigenous Allies: Working for Positive Change in Schools
Wednesday, October 28- 3- 4 pm.
Allyship is a critical leadership tool that non-Aboriginal leaders can use in their work with Indigenous communities to support the creation of inclusive learning spaces. The Aboriginal Enhancement Schools Network (AESN) was founded five years ago and has built a network of teachers and teacher-leaders who put Aboriginal student success at the center of their work. This presentation draws from a recently completed study of this network making evident key strategies for successful inclusion that make a difference for all learners.
