Enwayaang Speaker Series: Walking my red road in an effort to find my forever career
- Date: Thursday, October 6, 2022 - 4:00 PM to 5:00 PM
Gzowski College presents "Enwayaang: A Series of Extraordinary Events", which are also part of Life After Trent events - a chance to hear more from Alumni about their life paths, their careers, and their Trent experiences.
The first speaker is Maureen Greyeyes-Brant, who completed her undergraduate degree in Native Studies with honours at Trent University in 1999.
Maureen is a strong Plains Cree Saskatchewan woman from Muskeg Lake Cree Nation who has been welcomed and adopted into the Mohawks of the Bay of Quinte located on the territory of Tyendinaga in Ontario. After her educational studies, Maureen joined the National Association of Friendship Centres (NAFC) as a Policy Communication Intern.
Later, she joined the RCMP as a regular member in February 2001 and from 2001 to 2007, where she gained invaluable experience as a general duty frontline member while posted in Swan River, Manitoba.
From December 2007 to present day, Maureen has worked in many different RCMP units. Recently, she has been honoured to undertake a year-long assignment with the newly created RCMP Indigenous Collaboration, Co-Development, Accountability (RICCA) team.
In her Enwayaang, Maureen will talk about how she found her career path.
This lecture is open to the public: all are welcome.
