Indigenous Inclusion Advisory
Tan'si, Oki, Danit'ada, Umba-watich, Bonjour, Hello. My name is Brad Spence, Principal Indigenous Advisory with Trace. When thinking about Indigenous inclusion, remember this: “Nothing about us without us." Having Indigenous professional consultants as part of your team makes everyone's lives easier. We work hard to support and train our clients about Indigenous inclusivity as a component of reconciliation efforts.
Trace uses the "Two-Eyed Seeing" approach, which includes the four components of Indigenous Inclusion: Education & Awareness, Engagement, Employment, and Business Partnerships. These components serve as our foundation to engaging and building relationships, and creating respectful, inclusive space. Indigenous inclusion has no boundaries. Mi'kmaq Elder Albert Marshall describes Two-Eyed Seeing as learning to see from your one eye with Indigenous ways of knowing and using your other eye to see the Western approach for the benefit of all. I help our clients understand there are two perspective and to see both for the greater good of all.
Clients are looking for ways to meet their commitments to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Call to Action No. 92. It can feel overwhelming. Where do you start? Trace is here to help you with the training, strategy, and action plans that are the right fit for you. Give me a call – I’m happy to chat.
