*** Thank you for registering for our workshops, but unfortunately both of the workshops are full. Stay tuned for our upcoming workshops in 2024. ***

You are invited to a workshop to exploring the recently-published Dewemaagannag/My Relations: Principles and values to decolonize engagement with Indigenous communities. Created by Concordia's Office of Community Engagement, this guide for researchers, academics, and university staff features key principles and values to help in building and deepening their relationships with Indigenous individuals, organizations, and communities. 

The workshop will be led by Monica E. Mulrennan, PhD, Professor and Associate Vice-President, Research (Development and Outreach), Geography, Planning and Environment, who will share her experiences of engaging with Indigenous communities, and the principles and values that guide her research. 

Lunch will be served.


The Office of Community Engagement at Concordia University assists in the creation of academic and non-academic partnerships that are locally rooted, community-driven and beneficial to all involved. With social justice as a core value, we prioritize groups that have been excluded from or dismissed by institutions, and support collaborations that address inequalities in innovative ways. More specifically, we apply the university’s commitment to building long-term and meaningful relationships with Indigenous communities as described in the Indigenous Directions Action Plan.
