As an Indigenous woman working in a senior role at the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation and within the greater University, I am able to provide an Indigenous perspective and broaden conversations that are taking place. I am thrilled to be a part of the University of Manitoba community." Stephanie Scott, Director of Operations, National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation
