Hear Joseph Kiunga’s story at Intercultural week
Events will be taking place in Prince Albert between March 21 and 24, 2017
This year marks the second Intercultural Week at Saskatchewan Polytechnic. The annual event seeks to celebrate diversity, foster understanding, facilitate the transfer of cultural knowledge and experiences, and foster safe learning spaces in which diversity is honoured and respected.
In Prince Albert, events include drumming circles, friendship dances and a speaker panel. On March 21 alumni and local Community Futures general manager Joseph Kiunga will help kick-off the celebrations with his keynote address.
Joseph Kiunga originally hails from Kenya and immigrated to Canada in 2001, where he has called Prince Albert home for more than 10 years. He is an alumni of the Recreation and Tourism Management program and former Prince Albert campus manager for the Saskatchewan Polytechnic Students’ Association. Joseph’s passion involves being actively engaged in growing a diverse community and now works in a professional capacity as General Manager for Prince Albert and District Community Futures. He values respect for all people in coming together to learn from one another and will share personal stories of how he has adapted to new environments throughout his life. Joseph enjoys volunteering and is a member of the local Multicultural Society.
