8:00 AM - 9:30 AM Building Community by Supporting Local Panel

Small businesses provide character and individuality to a community. It is neighbours helping neighbours ― friends helping friends. However, small businesses are more than that. They benefit their local communities in many concrete, quantifiable ways. Small businesses are the backbone of their local communities. In recent years, a movement has begun. It’s a movement that takes consumers away from large, impersonal big-box retailers and introduces them to the people doing business in their very own cities.

This workshop will examine the role of small business in building community, sustainability and women’s roles in how to provide leadership for community support.

    At their best, university chapels are experimental spaces, places where people sift through narrative and poetry, music and ritual, history and practice to create from new combinations of old things something that is alive in the present. They offer a place to put the specialized knowledge of the university into conversation with larger human concerns; to consider the wisdom of religious thought and practice as part of our human inheritance; and to ask what we might learn through prayer, faith, and service.  Stephanie Paulsell, "When the chapel is the most open place on campus" in Christian Century, October 4, 2019.

     


  • Martin Luther University College
  • 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM Laurier Milton Lecture Series: Indigenous Women, Storytelling, and Activism

    Wilfrid Laurier University, the Town of Milton and the Milton Public Library are pleased to present the 2020-2021 Laurier Milton Lecture Series.

    Wilfrid Laurier has long supported the public role of academics to bring their knowledge and thinking outside of the classroom. The Laurier Milton Lecture Series provides a wonderful opportunity to engage in a public dialogue with citizens of Milton on a broad array of important topics. We are pleased that the presentations represent the current research and analysis of members of different faculties, departments and programs.

    Lectures take place the second Wednesday of each month starting September 2020 and until May 2021 from 7- 8 pm. Lectures will take place via Zoom. Registration required and is free. Please register at beinspired.ca/lmls

    December 9th lecture will discuss Indigenous Women, Storytelling, and Activism  presented by Dr. Lianne C. Leddy, Associate Professor, Indigenous Studies, Faculty of Liberal Arts.

    What do Indigenous women's voices teach us about our unique histories? Lianne will share some of what she has learned from interviewing Elders, providing examples about the "Indian Homemaker's Club" from the 1950s to demonstrate the power of Indigenous women's activism in our communities.

    Lianne C. Leddy (Anishinaabe kwe) is a member of the Serpent River First Nation and was born and raised in Elliot Lake, Ontario. She is an associate professor of Indigenous Studies in Laurier's Faculty of Liberal Arts. Her research focuses on Indigenous-settler relations, particularly those framed by gender and environmental issues. She is also interested in Indigenous methodologies and decolonizing research practices.
