York University’s Schulich Executive Education Centre (SEEC) and the Ontario Native Women’s Association (ONWA) have partnered to offer ONWA members a mini-MBA program tailored for the needs of Indigenous leaders. SEEC customized its nine-day Schulich Mini-MBA: Essentials of Management program to provide relevant information in a variety of subjects from marketing to finance and HR to Indigenous leaders. Sessions in topics such as policy and government, political acuity, community centricity, and grant writing were added to the program. “By designing classes that included the comfort of culture while building classes into their students’ daily work lives supported by their employers, higher learning became something to look forward to rather than a burden, said OWNA communications manager Andre Morriseau.
