Indigenous Communities: Bridging the Digital Divide and Increasing Participation in the Digital Economy.

Thursday, February 25, 2021 4:00 PM - 7:00 PM

Trent Alumnus Jarret Leaman will be our guest speaker at our weekly Enwayaang Series on Thursday Feb 25th, 4:00 pm.

Topic: “Indigenous Communities: Bridging the Digital Divide and Increasing Participation in the Digital Economy.”

Jarret will speak about his role as founder of the Centre for Indigenous Education and Technology, and while his talk will be a bit more focused on Indigenous data sovereignty we will hear more about the other companies he runs (talent Agency Ayaabe Management and Troon Technologies). Jarret will also speak about his time at Trent and reflect on how his experiences shaped his career path.

Enwayaang is a weekly series dedicated to passionate speakers and audiences “speaking together.” We are pleased to feature this particular weekly talk as a “Life After Trent” event.
