Indigenous Homecoming speed networking event builds relationships five minutes at a time
The Indigenous community at the University of Manitoba is strong. A focal point for this strength is Migizii Agamik – Bald Eagle Lodge. It’s here where First Nations, Métis and Inuit students can find a welcoming home, make connections and access programs and services.
The connections made here continue beyond graduation, as exemplified at the Indigenous Homecoming speed networking and lunch on Sept. 13 when students had the opportunity to meet U of M alumni, faculty, staff and community leaders to learn about various career paths, and get inspired by their successes.
“Indigenous Homecoming is a wonderful opportunity to engage with alumni who are part of our University community,” said Lynn Lavallée, Vice-Provost (Indigenous Engagement). “This year, we were able to bring alumni together with Indigenous students, as well as U of M faculty and staff, for fun and meaningful interactions that can grow opportunities and connections.”
