Advisor Kick Off

Campus Calgary / Open Minds Advisors are a group of representatives from Community/Sites, Education, and Funder partners.  We were pleased to have our Advisor team together on September 30th to consider the year ahead as well as to review Stakeholder feedback from our annual Stakeholder meeting.

It is becoming tradition at Retreats to have participants share a personal or site value for the year ahead.  Our coordinator team shared and discussed this year's values:

It is no surprise "connection" continues to be a word that keeps coming up when it comes to our Campus Calgary / Open Minds Community.

Artifacts were used to share Advisor priorities in relation to our new Campus Calgary / Open Minds mission and vision.  Can you see how these diverse artifacts might connect to our shared work together?

We were pleased to host this year's Retreat at the Career and Technology Centre (CTC) at Lord Shaughnessy High School.  The day was significant as staff and students were recognizing Orange Shirt Day remembering the experiences of Residential School survivors and invited us to be part of this meaningful observation.  Advisors were also provided a tour to provide educational context to the day of the Centre by assistant principal, Monti Tanner.

The C.T. Centre facility and Sage Gardens as a ceremonial blessing takes place in conjunction with Orange Shirt Day.
