Presenter: Florence Glanfield
September 30, 2021 was the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation in Canada. October 11, 2021 was known in some states as Indigenous Peoples' Day. These days are reminders that experiences of Indigenous peoples, nations, and lands are often not included in particular discourses around equity, inclusion, and diversity. In this session I will share my journey as a human being that identifies as Métis (one of the recognized Indigenous nations in Canada) and as a woman in the fields of mathematics and mathematics education. I will share the ways in which my early experiences in post secondary mathematics informed my work as a secondary mathematics teacher, and continue to inform my work and passion as a volunteer, university professor, researcher, and administrator.
