#15 – Colonialism, co-creation and courageous action with Ben Borne

In light of the horrific recent discovery of the remains of 215 Indigenous children in unmarked graves in Kamloops, we wanted to focus our learning on the Indigenous experience. We were joined by Ben Borne, a descendant of yellow quill First Nation and co-founder of Symmetry PR. Ben shared how he came to understand his Indigenous identity and his own privilege while discovering first-hand the realities and barriers that indigenous people face in Canada. His message to well-intentioned leaders is clear: don’t just say sorry, find a way to rebuild systems. Take it a step further and invite those in the margins to co-create new frameworks with you.
