SLA Conference 2015 - Mary Donaldson Lecture Poster
The lecture series, established by the Saskatchewan Library Association in 1967, is free and open to the public. This years' speaker is Gabrielle Scrimshaw, born and raised in Northern Saskatchewan, and a member of the Hatchet Lake First Nation. She is passionate about diversity, leadership and innovation. Her presentation will focus on how aboriginal people are growing in numbers, their educational rates, and what it means for the Canadian economy. Ms. Scrimshaw was honoured as Indspire's 2013 First Nations Youth Recipient, considered the highest honour the Indigenous community bestows upon their own achievers. The lecture will start at 7 p.m. at First Nations University of Canada, Regina.
