Developed in partnership with the Faculty of Native Studies, the Indigenous Partnership Development Program (IPDP) helps non-Indigenous business and public-sector employees work more effectively alongside Indigenous communities with greater understanding.
This program aims to strengthen coalitions within Alberta and beyond by creating a space wherein all parties can hear each other, and establish a shared knowledge of history and vision for the future. Through success in these objectives, this program will be transformational in creating positive change within our province.
The IPDP combines the insight gained through in-depth communication with industry and Indigenous leaders and research-based findings and leading practice. Through participation in the IPDP, you will leave with real action plans and a toolkit for your organization.
- Identify the histories and worldviews of Indigenous communities and how it applies today.
