The second National Day for Truth and Reconciliation in Canada (September 30, 2022) has just passed. The next one is on the horizon. Between now and then, how will you and your team prepare yourselves to design and implement an effective plan or strategy for advancing Truth and Reconciliation in your organization? How will you improve or strengthen relationships with Indigenous employees, clients, and business partners, and increase engagement, recruitment, and retention? How will you measure the return on your investment?
