A Cross Cultural Dialogue: Exploring Reconciliation through Philanthropy

The Circle, Tides Canada and the Inspirit Foundation are honored to host and invite you to attend, “A Cross Cultural Dialogue: Exploring Reconciliation through Philanthropy” in partnership with the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada (TRC). Across our country, members of the TRC have documented, listened to and shared personal experiences of residential school Survivors as part of their mandate within the Indian Residential School Settlement Agreement to “witness, support, promote, and facilitate truth and reconciliation events both at the national and community level.”
We invite our peers and leaders within the philanthropic and non-profit community to be engaged through a moderated panel discussion about the role that our sector can play in reconciliation as we continue to build momentum in fostering new and better relationships in all communities.
