How to be an Ally: Working with Urban Indigenous Women

February 15, 2018

This is a conversation with Denise B. McLeod on urban Indigenous women's realities and moving past stereotypes and changing perspectives. It also aims to build partnerships between Indigenous and mainstream service providers and organizations that can facilitate the provision of wrap-around, holistic supports for Indigenous children and families. The format will be an intimate conversation with Denise B. McLeod, co-founder of Ode'Min Giizis Indigenous Full Spectrum Doula Collective in a Q&A style with Adil Dhalla, the Executive Director at CSI. The focus will be on how mainstream agencies can build capacity within their work to understand issues faced by urban Indigenous women.
