“…when I first started in the sector, and was still figuring out what exactly this whole philanthropy thing was, I was pleasantly surprised to hear people talk about generosity, giving, and sharing. I soon realized that despite using the same English words, we actually weren’t talking about the same thing. Many folks in the sector were actually talking about charity and about giving back only after they’d, or the organizations they work for, had accumulated so much. What I was talking about was justice and responsibility, and that as a Métis person I had a responsibility to take care of others, to gift and to share, and to use my skills for the collective good.” | Governing Circle Members in Conversation
