TRC Immersive Stories, Story Teller: Jamie Wilson In-Person / Online

Immersive Stories: Truth & Reconciliation

Story Teller: Jamie Wilson       Host: Dayna Graham

Date: Tues. Oct. 18, 12-1pm. Location: Immersion Room, Main Floor, eTV Studio (NDC) & Online

The Immersive Stories Program will offer participants a first-hand opportunity to gain more knowledge and understanding about multi-layered socio-cultural identities and lived experiences. This will contribute to an enhanced skillset that will help them to regularly check their personal, social and cultural assumptions, and manage quick conclusions and judgments. This in turn will contribute to our efforts to foster a diverse and inclusive College environment for students and faculty.

Each session in the Immersive Stories Program will involve a discussion with a member of our Red River College Polytechnic community, during which they will share their unique lived experiences, and invite participant questions and dialogue. These conversations will provide participants an opportunity to gain insights into the lived experiences of our diverse community and will assist in becoming aware of our own biases.
