Join us for Part 7 of our “Cultivating Careers” series!

Friday, December 8 

12:00-1:30 PM (PST)

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


In this professional development workshop, facilitator Madison Tardif will introduce us to key principles of trauma-informed practice, particularly through the lens of inclusive leadership.

Participants will leave with a better understanding of the impacts of trauma on individuals and communities, and how to lead with compassion and empathy. Madison will share tools and resources to empower us to create more supportive and resilient environments. 

We strongly encourage participants to have their cameras on to create a sense of accountability 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.
