Jeff Ward at Social At Home
Our CEO Jeff Ward was a featured speaker at this year’s SocialAtHome virtual conference from September 23-24, 2021, where he addressed Amplifying Indigenous Voices in the digital space.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, SocialAtHome has moved online and set the standard for what a virtual conference can be. Their events are the opportunity to ensure your company’s digital voice is ready for whatever the year might bring. This conference really brings its A-game with insightful and informative speakers, and possibly the best conference swag box (yes, box) that we've ever seen!
Weren’t able to attend? Here’s a quote from Jeff’s talk on Amplifying Indigenous Voices:
“We have this imperfect word: Reconciliation. But for me it’s about relationships and reciprocity. It’s really that word, [Indinawemaaganidog, meaning] All My Relations. In my teachings this means we’re all related to each other. I’m related to you. You’re related to me. We are all relations. My ancestors actions generations before have affected me. […] Our actions affect people who have not yet arrived, somebody that we will never meet or get to speak to - our actions are affecting them. […] When I think of Reconciliation, that’s how I connect with that word as imperfect as it may be.”
SocialAtHome will return early 2022. Be sure to keep an eye out so you can register early!
