About The Panel
Indigenous activists, storytellers, entrepreneurs, and corporate employees are making good use of the metaverse by leveraging its key social platforms to change the narrative surrounding Indigenous people’s experiences in the workplace. By showcasing the beauty of their cultures, sharing stories of community and collective healing, and speaking hard truths, they are deconstructing stereotypes and highlighting how their perspectives, worldviews and unique ways of living can not only contribute to innovation and better business outcomes, but also make the world a better place.
This panel discussion explores how Indigenous influencers are utilizing their social platforms to their advantage and challenging organizations to expand on their DEI policies to create more inclusive corporate cultures with equal opportunity for all. Now more than ever, getting involved in these conversations means taking productive steps towards a thriving workforce where Indigenous employees feel safe, valued for their cultural differences, and have room to flourish.
