Story submitted on behalf of the LCC Planning Committee
The LCC Planning Team is pleased to share that we will be welcoming Shane N. Young as our Day 1 keynote to the conference this year. Shane is an educator, PhD Candidate (Trent), and Joseph-Armand Bombardier Scholar of Mi'kmaw and of Newfoundland settler ancestry. He is a member of the Qalipu First Nation on the southwestern coast of Newfoundland, where he was born and raised, and has been living in Tkaronto since 2006. His arrival at LCC comes at a pivotal time as SLC continues to explore this year’s theme of “reconnect, reflect, and recharge” and its intersections with Indigenous Ways of Knowing and Being.
We would like to thank Helena Neveu, Knowledge Keeper at SLC and Special Advisor to LCC, for connecting us with Shane as we look forward to learning more from him in the upcoming sessions. Shane will be conducting a virtual keynote on Day 1 (May 30) but will also offer an interactive workshop on the "Wellness Wheel Exercise" during Day 2 (May 31) on the Kingston campus.
To learn more about Shane, we invite you to read his full bio on the LCC website.
The LCC Planning Committee previously announced the keynote by Dr. Robyn Hanley-Dafoe.
We are currently finalizing the LCC schedule and plan to open the official registration in early May. Watch for an email update on registration details and information on the early bird prizes!
In the meantime, please make sure to block off your calendars on May 30 (virtual) and May 31 (in person on Kingston Campus). The College will also be coordinating travel details from Cornwall and Brockville campuses on Day 2 so that we can ensure everyone is available to participate on the Kingston campus.
