October 4th’s conversation will be with Appolinaire Nadembega, an educator from Burkina Faso.

In August 2020, Appolinaire Nadembega, an educator from Burkina Faso (a French speaking country in West Africa), and his family left their home and country for Canada, after a seven years-long process that began in 2013.

Join us for a community conversation with Appolinaire to learn more about his experience, challenges, dreams and worries and what pushes one to leave their homeland for the unknown.

Inward Bound’s Equity and Interdependence Conversations are designed to further institutionalize our commitment to our values. Through this year-long co-learning program, our community is invited to explore and engage within themed conversations of equity and interdependence. Together, we apply our experiences and perspectives into a shared and diverse learning environment.

Inward Bound’s ecosystem consists of standing committees, working groups, community stakeholders, and our external world. For more information regarding our ecosystem and collaborative leadership, please visit our Equity and Interdependence Dashboard.
