The design of the Sage Initiative online learning curriculum is rooted in Indigenous epistemology. It will include unique features such as Indigenous concepts of “Wealth”, an examination of traditional Indigenous systems of commerce and reciprocity (such as the potlatch system), and a focus on our trauma relationship with money.
Sage Initiative builds wealth and prosperity for Indigenous womxn, their families, and their communities by teaching investment literacy and Indigenous concepts of commerce.
We put you squarely in the driver's seat while offering you the skills and pathways to various careers in impact investing all the while honoring Indigenous ways of knowing and being. In the program, you will be supported to make small-medium-sized impact investments resulting in balanced social, environmental, and fiscal returns.
By investing exclusively in Indigenous-owned businesses, Indigenous wealth stays in Indigenous communities thus forming a "Circular economy".
