Reconciliation between Indigenous and all Canadians is a frequent topic in news headlines, political speeches, and communities across the country. Through their 94 Calls to Action, the Truth and Reconciliation Commission offered a roadmap to Canadians on the way forward to a more inclusive, productive, and engaged society. So where do public participation professionals and the practice of P2 fit in this reconciliation journey? Join Indigenous Engagement specialists Teneya Gwin and Anne Harding to explore the intersection between reconciliation and public participation and advance your own reconciliation journey in the process.

Anne Harding is the Owner of Forum Relations and has been practicing in the field of Indigenous Engagement for over a decade, working with over 60 Indigenous communities from across Canada since 2005. She developed and currently coordinates the Indigenous Awareness learning program at Suncor Energy, and has been co-trainer for the foundations course in the program for the last seven years. Anne has a Master of Arts in Corporate-Aboriginal Relations, is an IAP2 Certified Public Participation Professional (CP3), Past-President of IAP2 Canada, and currently coordinates IAP2 Canada’s Indigenous Engagement Community of Practice.

Teneya Gwin is the Owner of Eleven Eleven Consulting and has worked with the Indigenous communities of Alberta for over a decade. She is the Calgary Public Library’s first ever Indigenous Services Design Lead, building relationships and developing learning and engagement programs to support the library’s efforts in Indigenization and reconciliation.

Teneya is sixth generation Metis and a member of the Cunningham Clan on her mother’s side and a descendant from the Michele Band and Ferguson Clan on her father’s side.
