McMaster launches communications committee to advance Truth and Reconciliation

McMaster University has launched a communications committee focused on advancing Truth and Reconciliation. The Truth and Reconciliation Communications Standing Committee—which is composed of McMaster staff, faculty, and students—will consider education opportunities for non-Indigenous campus community members, including identifying content that shares Indigenous peoples’ stories and experiences, co-developing communications campaigns, and supporting planning for campus-wide events. The committee will also provide resources to non-Indigenous groups that are seeking guidance as they plan events or public programming to advance Truth and Reconciliation. “This committee [recognizes] the need for Indigenous and non-Indigenous communities to work together to continuously advance learning and understanding in this important area,” said McMaster Indigenous Studies Department Chair Robert Innes.
