Panel Organized by:

Indigenous knowledge can have a large and meaningful impact on policy making, both at the societal level through public policy, as well as through the practices of organizations and individuals that interact with Indigenous populations.

In this session, panelists drawn from industry, academia, and the not-for-profit sectors will describe their experiences working with policy makers, or as policy makers themselves, to incorporate Indigenous knowledge into how organizations and individuals make decisions. Panelists and participants will discuss challenges, opportunities and successes in modifying policies and practices to accommodate Indigenous perspectives and address Indigenous concerns, especially when examining scientifically-based questions and technologies.
