Trent’s First Peoples House of Learning to launch Enwaaying Training Initiatives program

Trent University’s First Peoples House of Learning will be launching the Enwaaying Training Initiatives program in order to break down barriers for Indigenous women and drive systemic change. The project, which is funded by nearly $500K in funding from Canada’s Feminist Response and Recovery Fund, will provide interactive professional development workshops that will teach community leaders and decision makers about systemic issues facing Indigenous women and girls. The workshops will be developed and led by Indigenous women and will feature local elders. “[T]his new experiential training initiative has the potential to shift the paradigm we are working within – a fundamental part of changing the attitudes and beliefs that are at the foundation of our nation,” said First Peoples House of Learning Director Dr Dawn Lavell-Harvard.
