March 30, 2021 Starting Today: Decolonizing the Business School and Implications for PRME

REGISTER HERE 2:00 - 3:00 pm CET Part of the PRME Education Academy Seminar Series Speakers: Dara Kelly, Assistant Professor & Jordyn Hrenyk, PhD Candidate, Simon Fraser University As members of the Indigenous caucus at the Academy of Management, Dara and Jordyn are both early in career scholars, one as an Assistant Professor, and the other completing her PhD at the Beedie School of Business at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, Canada. In Beedie’s 2010 PRME report, Indigenous awareness is featured as an early indicator of what would later become a full-fledged graduate degree program – the Executive MBA in Indigenous Business and Leadership. This initiative was originally intended to achieve objectives around Indigenous inclusion and access to education where these opportunities did not previously exist. How that translates is having Indigenous students within our classrooms but there is much more to develop. We propose that what is necessary is a paradigm shift where Indigenous worldviews are valued as legitimate knowledge systems that encompass not just context for classroom discussion, but offer theories, methodologies, methods for evaluation, analysis and collective sense-making. Dr. Dara Kelly is from the Leq’á:mel First Nation, part of the Stó:lō Coast Salish. She is an Assistant Professor of Indigenous Business at the Beedie School of Business, Simon Fraser University. She teaches in the Executive MBA in Indigenous Business and Leadership program, and on Indigenous business environments within full-time and part-time MBA programs. Her research helps fill in gaps in the literature on the economic concepts and practices of the Coast Salish and other Indigenous nations. She has presented in numerous conferences and public spaces in an effort to challenge conventional economical practices and inform positive change by drawing on knowledge of Indigenous economics. She is Co-Chair of the Indigenous Caucus at the Academy of Management and serves on the board of the Association for Economic Research of Indigenous Peoples. Jordyn Hrenyk is a Michif and white scholar from Métis Nation Saskatchewan. She grew up outside of her home territory, on the traditional unceded territory of the Lheidli T'enneh and now resides on the traditional unceded territory of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh Nations in Vancouver, BC. Jordyn is a PhD candidate in Strategy at the Beedie School of Business at Simon Fraser University. Jordyn’s research interests are centered on how Indigenous entrepreneurs pass on, strengthen, and make use of traditions and traditional practices in their organizational processes and products. Jordyn has a Master of Science degree in Management (Strategy) from Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario, which sits upon the traditional unceded territory of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy and the Anishinabek Nation. She has a Bachelor of Commerce degree from the University of Victoria, which is upon traditional unceded territory of the Lekwungen-speaking Peoples of the Esquimalt and Songhees First Nations. --- The PRME Education Academy Seminar Series offers cutting-edge scholarly and practitioner insights from a diversity of perspectives on Responsible Management Education. Participants are encouraged to actively challenge the speakers and take a provocative stance towards their ideas and contentions. The seminars are moderated by professors Lars Moratis and Frans Melissen, joint holders of the Chair in Management Education for Sustainability at Antwerp Management School and Breda University of Applied Sciences.
