Colleen Charles, Indigenous Voices Program Coordinator
Colleen started as an Indigenous Voices Program Coordinator with the Gwenna Moss Centre in the last week of September 2013. Working with Tereigh Ewert-Bauer, together they are promoting the Indigenous Voices Program campus-wide. She believes that all people will be working directly or indirectly with First Nations people and that there needs to be an avenue where we can build capacity through creating partnerships and lasting relationships on campus and abroad.
She completed her M.Ed in Foundations in June 2013, focusing on Indigenous contexts in regards to leadership in First Nations education, resilience in education and anti-racism/anti-oppression theories and practices. She completed her undergraduate degree with a BA in Indigenous Studies and a diploma in Aboriginal Human Justice and in the Recreation and Leisure Management Program. In her years of experience in community development through sport, culture and recreation, this was her motivation to seek higher learning and her goal is to write about Aboriginal women in sport.
