Episode 10 | Guest: Erin Goodpipe
Diversity and inclusion is a hot topic in the world right now, but knowing how to make a difference can be tricky. Joining us in conversation today is Erin Goodpipe, a multi-disciplinary artist, educator, and researcher from the Standing Buffalo Dakota Nation. The conversation explores the way that stories inform culture as we live them out, the unconventional introduction to theatre that led her to work in it today, as well as what she gained from the theatre-making experience. We talk about how to engage with youth work in a meaningful way. (29 MINS)
Episode 11 | Guest: Laura Arndt
The Indigenous residential school system was designed to isolate Indigenous children from their culture, religion, and identity to assimilate them into the dominant colonial culture. The impacts of this repressive system are still felt today and injustices of the past have still not been reconciled. To help us unpack the history and these complex ideas is Laura Arndt, Chief operating officer of Survivors’ Secretariat, a survivor-lead organization mandated to uncover the truth about unmarked burial grounds. Laura is dedicated to the importance of dialogue and focuses her work on the complexity of kinship, relationships, and community through the lens of culture, identity, and belonging. Laura shares her knowledge of the history and the lasting negative legacy of the Canadian Indian residential school system. Also discuss the importance of justice, cultural identity and community, and how she approaches her work. (30 MIN)
The CCDI is a forward-looking social organization with research and learning woven into our DNA, tracing how people identify alongside demographic trends within the Canadian workplace to move employers from diversity to inclusion.
