Thompson Rivers University

Luminary Sessions

TRU and the School of Business and Economics (SoBE) are hosting Kelly Lendsay, founder and CEO of Luminary. Lendsay is touring Canadian campuses to promote Luminary’s strategy for increasing co-operation and collaboration among Indigenous business, communities and post-secondary research and organizations. SoBE is a charter member of the Luminary effort.

Lendsay is sharing the Luminary strategy for connecting faculty and student researchers with a Canada-wide community of Indigenous-focused research and innovation resources and promoting Indigenous-led research and pedagogy efforts. For more information about Luminary, please watch their video.

To engage Luminary’s target groups—researchers, students, staff and teaching faculty—Lendsay will hold three in-person sessions (the student-only session also takes place remotely via Zoom), so RSVP to secure your spot as seats are limited.

Note that the Promoting Indigenous Relationships in Research session, on Thursday, Feb. 3 (10 – 11:30 a.m.), is for faculty and student researchers.

The event wraps up by 10:30 a.m. on Friday, Feb. 4.

RSVP here.

Note: COVID-19 event safety protocols will be followed for all in-person sessions.
