Decolonizing Business Through Workplace Spirituality

GATHER is a community of Indigenous and non-Indigenous changemakers coming together on a consistent basis to learn, heal, and grow - together - and a digital storytelling platform that tracks these raw, real, and authentic conversations and tells the story of the wisdom gathered for a purpose throughout this individual and collective journey of expansion.

Why is this conversation important?

It is important to talk about decolonizing business because for too long Indigenous (and other oppressed groups) have been marginalized and pushed to the sidelines. It is time to decolonize and make room for other ways of knowing. It is time to de-center Western thought and give credit to Indigenous thought leaders and knowledge keepers in terms of well-being; interconnectedness; wealth distribution; mind/body/spirit connection; land stewardship; being in right relations; plus so much more.
