Conference theme: A Bridge to Partnership
Progress is never achieved in isolation. A Bridge to Partnership signifies our dedication to building bridges that transcend academic, professional, and geographic boundaries. It embodies the essence of bringing together diverse perspectives, skills, and expertise to navigate the complexities of the ever-changing landscape.
At ASAC 2024, we will explore how partnerships can lead to innovation, growth, and positive impact. Together, we will build bridges that lead to the new horizons and connections that will collectively shape the future of business.
Be part of a dynamic community that values inclusivity, collaboration, and the power of coming together to drive progress. We look forward to crossing these bridges with you at ASAC, where partnership is the foundation of our shared success.

Indigenizing business schools
Building off sessions at ASAC 2023 — Can We Find Our Way, we will be creating a space to continue the important conversation about Indigenizing business schools across Canada. Our aim is to provide a platform to bring people together around this subject every year to keep the momentum going for positive steps towards Reconciliation.
