Wired Together Speaker Spotlight: Elder Roberta Price
Elder Roberta Price from the Snuneymuxw and Cowichan First Nations has worked tirelessly over the past three decades to educate and raise awareness about issues affecting First Nations people in a positive, informative, and productive manner. She does this by working as a First Nations educator, sharing her traditional knowledge in schools, within the community, and with First Nations people.
We are pleased to have Elder Roberta open the conference with an Indigenous welcome, and bring Indigenous insights and perspectives to the panel discussion on day two, titled Burnout, Compassion Fatigue and Vicarious Trauma – Moving to Resilience and Wellness.
