A Mile in Their Shoes: Truth, Empathy, and Reconciliation

#CCAE2023 National Conference Session

Featuring Ruth Dunley, Associate Director, Editorial Strategy, Queen’s University

In the wake of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission reports, Queen’s alumni called on us to help them chart a path toward Reconciliation. But how? How could we organize something with impact, and that would spur alumni to action? We learned that in order to get action, you have to create action – through experiential opportunities, collaboration, and storytelling. Working together, the Office of Advancement and the Office of Indigenous Initiatives collaborated with Ry Moran of the University of Victoria to create a one-of-a-kind experiential five-month journey for our alumni. Filled with emotion and empathy, it was a learning journey like nothing we’d ever done before, but that we know we’ll do again.

Note due to technical difficulties the first 8 min of the session is missing. However, the main content is very valuable.
