Monique Woroniak Information Services Librarian, Winnipeg Public Library

A librarian with Winnipeg Public Library since 2007, Monique Woroniak is a frequent presenter in the areas of community development and anti-racist approaches to service delivery—specifically, the ways non-Indigenous organizations can responsibly learn and take direction from Indigenous peoples. She serves on the Indigenous Matters Committee of the Canadian Federation of Library Associations and was named the Dalhousie Horrocks National Leadership Lecturer for 2017. In 2015 Monique co-founded groundworkforchange.org, a website designed to educate non-Indigenous peoples about Indigenous-related topics with the goal of building relationships rooted in solidarity and justice. The site has been shared widely across the country. In 2016 she received a CBC Manitoba Future 40 Award that recognized her as one of “the province’s next generation of leaders, builders, and change-makers under the age of 40.”
