Indigenous Engagement 101 – The Do’s and Don’ts | Lunch’n Learn Webinar

September 20, 2024

12:30 pm - 2:00 pm EST


No two Indigenous people or communities are the same so there are no steadfast “rules” when it comes to Indigenous Engagement. Having said that, Sandi Boucher does believe there are guiding principles rooted in “truth”, principles she believes move us all closer to reconciliation. In this Lunch n Learn session, Sandi shares these principles, practices that participants can begin using immediately after the session.

This 90-minute lunch’n learn session is for all levels of HR professionals and non-HR professionals that are asking the question of ‘how do I engagement better?’ Secure your spot to evaluate your engagement approach and be a part of reconciliation. (REGISTER BELOW)

Testimonial: Ryan Land, Indigenous Relations Manager

Sandi can help shift organizational mountains through inclusive and respectful truth and reconciliation education and practice. She is especially skilled at working with reluctant or resistant peoples who might be very early on in their learning journey. She moves the dial on cultural proficiency in a meaningful, authentic and accepting manner. She makes a difference.

Offering a perspective so often denied non-Indigenous Canadians, Sandi Boucher, the owner of Reconciliation Works Canada, uses Anishinaabe (Ojibwe) teachings, metaphors, stories, cartoons, her infectious humour, and her undeniable wisdom to build understanding of and respect for the Indigenous peoples she calls family, friends, and colleagues.

A proud member of Seine River First Nation in Treaty #3 territory in northern Ontario, Sandi is internally recognized as an engaging speaker, a traditional knowledge keeper, and a best-selling author.  She began her speaking career in 2009 with the launch of her first book “Honorary Indian”.  Four books later, Sandi and her team are now laser-focused on healing both sides of the eagle feather she so often refers to.

With thought-provoking words, she guides, educates, empowers and encourages people to actively engage in the reconciliation process. Her audiences include First Nation communities, corporations, small to medium size businesses, municipalities, hospitals, school boards, universities, colleges, and participants at countless conferences and seminars.

How it all began: Sandi started her work as a storyteller and inspirational speaker in 2009, after 25 years in the Employment and Training industry.

Now with more than 14 years under her belt, Sandi has travelled across Canada and as far off as Finland, sharing her message of empowerment with all the nations of this amazing world.

But her passion will always be her writing. Sandi’s first book, “Honorary Indian” which tells of her Mother’s teachings through Sandi’s life story, was released in 2010, reaching Best Seller status in 2013.

“Her Mother’s Daughter” followed in 2013, reaching Best Seller status in 2015.

And in 2023, she released “I am Awake” a collection of her much-loved blog posts for her adoring fans. For more information about Sandi, please visit: Sandi Boucher | Through Indigenous Eyes
