Beth Gorham is Carleton’s manager of public affairs, a position she has held since 2008. She has been involved in Indigenous issues since she started.

“This committee presents a golden opportunity to really move the yardstick on Indigenous education and ways of knowing on campus,” says Gorham. “I am looking forward to doing whatever I can to help. I tend to find people help me much more because of the amount that I learn.”

Gorham was a member of Carleton’s Indigenous Education Council established in October 2013 to promote, guide and oversee implementation of the university’s Aboriginal Co-ordinated Strategy.

A former longtime journalist for The Canadian Press and Halifax Chronicle-Herald, she won a National Newspaper Award in 1993 for coverage of tragic struggles in the Naskapi community of the Mushuau Innu First Nation in Davis Inlet, Labrador, plagued by youth gas sniffing, alcohol addiction and suicide.
