Overview

HelpSeeker is excited to present our webinar: On the Map: Supporting Indigenous Self-Representation & Ownership in Systems Mapping

Reconciliation needs to be central to creating a more equitable social safety net.

As it stands, however, Indigenous communities & services are often left out of key datasets, creating barriers to accessing help, as well as limiting our understanding of the resources Indigenous communities need. This creates a risk of continuing to overlook important issues in decision-making and continuing to perpetuate inequality.

In this webinar, Monique Fry, Amber Potts, Aaron Franks and Shawn Gervais will discuss why access to information, self-representation, and understanding community needs is essential to supporting Indigenous communities, and how HelpSeeker is supporting this through their Systems Mapping efforts.

HelpSeeker’s Elder in Residence, Grandmother Doreen Spence, will open and close the session.
