Camosun launches Advanced Certificate program in Indigenous leadership, learning

Camosun College has launched a new certificate program that focuses on the relational, cultural, and strategic dimensions of Indigenous leadership. The Advanced Certificate in Ways of Indigenous Leadership & Learning (WILL) program will provide Indigenous and non-Indigenous learners with expertise in Indigenous leadership practices. The 20-month program is offered through Camosun’s Eyēʔ Sqậ’lewen and will be co-taught with Māori scholars and Knowledge Keepers from Aotearoa (New Zealand). “This is a really important Indigenous-led program that brings together people from many different Nations and sectors,” said Camosun WILL Program Coordinator Jessica Morin. “Students will deepen their leadership philosophies and develop unique and diverse strategies to support their leadership work in these complex times of change.”
