Workshop 6: Leadathon

Saturday March 25th (online) | 1:30-5:00 PM EST

The purpose of the competition is to build awareness about challenges that Indigenous communities in Canada face while developing leadership skills to propose creative and sustainable solutions. Students will work in collaborative teams, exploring Indigenous Ways of Knowing concepts and learning to become stewards and leaders of technology. Through the competition, students will lead together, reflect on their role, and create a plan to weave Indigenous Ways of Knowing to address the Canadian Engineering Grand Challenges (CEGCs).

The Leadathon is a student leadership competition hosted by the University of Guelph, the University of Waterloo, and the University of Manitoba.
