Olympian Waneek Horn-Miller to deliver Friday breakfast keynote at CNA2019

On Friday, March 1, at 7:30 a.m. CNA2019 will present its breakfast keynote speaker Waneek Horn-Miller.

Horn Miller is an Olympian, activist, and speaker on Indigenous health and reconciliation.

In 2000, she became the first Mohawk woman from Canada to ever compete in the Olympic games, co-captaining Team Canada’s women’s water polo team at the Sydney games.

After her retirement as an athlete, she has gone on to help others achieve in sports and lead healthy, balanced lifestyles.

She was Assistant Chef de Mission for Team Canada at the 2015 Pan Am Games. She is also the host of Working It Out Together—a 13-part documentary and healthy-eating initiative with the Aboriginal Peoples’ Television Network, which aims to build “an Indigenous movement of positive change” and “features dynamic leaders in health advocacy and courageous men and women who are figuring out what it takes to be well and to thrive.”

She will speak about indigenous reconciliation and finding common ground through dialogue.

In this keynote, Horn-Miller unpacks the hard but necessary work ahead of us if we want to escape our history of conflict and move to a place of shared understanding. If we embrace the true spirit of reconciliation, we need to make it a way of life—a cornerstone of how we proceed as a multicultural society—and not just a destination.

To Horn-Miller, this takes listening, and dialogue; it means extending empathy to those with different outlooks, and not shying away from debate; it means solutions-based thinking rooted in our shared aspirations. But if we can do this, we can do something unique in this country. And we can embrace what reconciliation is all about—a way of addressing wrongs, living in harmony, and healing for those who need it most.

David Coletto confirmed for CNA2019

Get perspective on new nuclear and the public with David Coletto at CNA2019.

February 28, 2019 – 12:00

Is the public still imprisoned within a distorted, cliché-ridden perception of nuclear technology – despite its clean energy bona fides, its reliability and affordability?

If climate change and urgently reducing GHG missions constitute the greatest challenge facing our societies, then why the continued opposition of certain sectors of the public and governments to nuclear technology?

Will millennials and following generations warm up to New Nuclear?

Join us for lunch on Thursday, February 28, for some perspective from CNA keynote speaker David Coletto.

David is one of the founding partners and CEO of Abacus Data. He has almost a decade of experience working in the marketing research industry and is an industry leader in online research methodologies, public affairs research, corporate and organizational reputation studies, and youth research.
