Join us on Zoom to hear a few words from Mediate BC’s Board Chair Julie Daum and watch the presentation of the Susanna Jani Award in Supporting Excellence in Mediation. Feel free to have a favo(u)rite beverage (and snacks!) on hand to salute the award recipient! You will then be able to move around between breakout rooms where you’ll connect with old friends and new to mingle with colleagues up and down the West Coast of Canada and the US!

7:00-8:00 pm – Northwest Collaborative Futures Conference Opening Night Presentation and Keynote

We’ll ask everyone to switch to a different Zoom link to hear from the Conference keynote speaker Tahmoh Penikett. We are excited and hono(u)red to have Tahmoh  join us to share reflections on his own experiences with the impacts of artificial borders and to stimulate reflection and conversation.

Tahmoh Penikett is an actor especially recognized for his roles in many genre TV series. Born in Whitehorse, Yukon, Canada, Tahmoh is of the Tanana people. They are his blood relations and family. He has a strong connection and is extremely devoted to his family with whom he spends time whenever possible. He has a strong connection to Tanana traditions and love of storytelling.
