Join us this month for Part 4 of our “Cultivating Careers” series!

Wednesday, July 5 

12-1 PM (PST)

Any cultural professionals who identify as Indigenous, Black, or a Person of Colour (IBPOC) are welcome to attend.


In this professional development session, facilitator Madison Tardif will provide tools and resources to think about what skills make an inclusive leader. 

Participants will be encouraged to think about their own positionality and how to use their power to promote change in their own spheres of influence. 

*Please note that this session will involve breakout rooms, and we strongly encourage participants to have their cameras on to create a sense of safety in this IBPOC affinity space.*

About the Facilitator:

Madison is of mixed Afro-Indigenous and European ancestry and currently resides and works on unceded Musqueam, Squamish, and Tseleil-Waututh territory. It is through her own lived experience as a multiracial person that Madison began exploring concepts of identity, power, privilege, and systems of oppression. During her graduate degree, she furthered understanding of community engagement, systems change, and decolonization. Her research focused on policy and decision-making in Indigenous self-governments and gave her a different perspective on leadership, community-centred decision-making, and decolonial approaches to governance.

Since then, her passion for human rights and community-building has led her into a career focused on promoting justice, equity, decolonization, indigenization, and anti-racism. In her current role as an Equity Strategist at the University of British Columbia, Madison focuses on anti-oppression through capacity-building, conflict engagement, education, and community-care.
