Reconciliation in Business 2024 Conference

2024 event information coming soon!

The Treaty Relations in Business Education (TRIBE) student group at the Ted Rogers School of Management, Toronto Metropolitan University is the host the annual Reconciliation in Business Conference.

Building on the success of previous year’s event, the one-day conference will consist of discussions designed to foster inclusion and appreciation of Indigenous perspectives and encourage adoption of Indigenous ways of knowing in education and places of business. The event will feature an Indigenous marketplace and a feast. 

The conference will kick off a week of Indigenous education events that culminates in a Pow Wow at Toronto Metropolitan University. 

Acknowledging the Land

The Ted Rogers School of Management is located on Toronto Purchase Treaty 13 (1805) and the Dish With One Spoon Treaty. We as students, staff, faculty and treaty people have a responsibility of honouring and protecting these treaties. We want to acknowledge the Mississaugas of the New Credit First Nation as the care takers of the land, as well as it traditional territories of the Anishinaabe, Haudenosaunee, Huron-Wendat, Chippewa. If you're reading this, then you are likely on, or near Mississaugas territory, and therefore, we suggest you visit these three resources with your colleagues, family and friends.
