About the Presenter(s):
Caroline Gosling

recently retired after 35 years as an educator with Edmonton Public Schools. During that time she taught at elementary, junior and senior high, was a behaviour consultant, a principal at four different schools and spent time seconded to both Alberta Children's Services and Alberta Education with a focus on supporting students who are vulnerable and creating welcoming, caring, respectful and safe learning environments. During her last secondment Caroline's main area of focus was mentoring, including supporting the Alberta Mentoring Partnership and setting up a Corporate Mentoring initiative at Alberta Education. For the last five years, Caroline has been a Big Sister and learned about mentoring from the 'inside'.

Tanya Tourangeau

is a proud Dene First Nation from the Northwest Territories, currently living on Treaty 6 territory in Edmonton, Alberta. Tanya is Mom to two amazing young Indigenous men, Granny to an enchanting teen granddaughter, and Auntie to countless nieces and nephews, many traditionally adopted.  Tanya’s background is in leading Reconciliation through joint economic development, policy development, strategic planning, stakeholder relations, and organizational change. She has worked for many Indigenous and non-Indigenous government, non-profit and for-profit organizations to create meaningful, large-scale systemic impact.  Tanya believes that Reconciliation can include Indigenous Mentoring, whether in programs created for Indigenous Youth or with a non-Indigenous mentor signing up to mentor an Indigenous Youth. Research shows that mentoring is one solution that can lead to more positive outcomes for all Youth, Indigenous Mentoring can be a call to action to assist Indigenous Youth in having equal opportunities to prosper.
