Hosted by the Centre for Indigenous Support and Community Engagement, the fifth annual Kinàmàgawin Symposium will be held in person on Thursday, February 8, 2024. The day- long symposium includes keynote speakers, panel discussions, and a cultural performance.

Now in its fifth year, the Kinàmàgawin Symposium addresses timely topics—chosen by Indigenous students—relevant to Indigenous peoples and empowers students, staff, and faculty at Carleton to further their knowledge and become a positive force for change.

The name Kinàmàgawin, which means Learning Together, is shared by the Kinàmàgawin Indigenous initiatives strategy published by the Carleton University Strategic Indigenous Initiatives Committee in 2020. In 2022, the Kinàmàgawin Progress Report was released.
