Applying Indigenous leadership in communities and organizations
The Ways of Indigenous Leadership and Learning (WILL) program empowers leaders, through a strength-based approach, to address internal capacity, growth, and development, and help ensure that organizations are accountable to your organizational mandate and goals. You'll develop the know-how to face opportunities, challenges and demands as you provide leadership to Indigenous communities and organizations.
Leadership enhances community connections
In the WILL program you will learn to integrate Indigenous cultural norms, approaches and ways of being and doing into your leadership of communities, organizations or agencies.
Bring Indigenous ways of being and doing into your work
Through blended learning, and a unique "across the waters" approach, which includes land-based, online and experiential learning, you will gain perspectives and skills within an interNational learning community made up of Indigenous learners and teachers in Canada, and with interNational partners across the globe.
The approaches, strategies and capacities acquired in WILL prepare working or emerging professionals, both Indigenous and non-Indigenous, to be successful in your positions of leadership. WILL highlights how connections with the natural world can support personal, community and organizational Indigenous self-determination.
As a graduate, you'll be prepared to support and enable Indigenous self-determination and development and lead change across public and private sectors.
