Awards

2016 Elizabeth Tower Faculty Award Elizabeth Tower Endowment Fund The main objective of this study is to explore the possibility of enhancing First Nations Community well-being and economic development through the promotion of social entrepreneurship on First Nations reserves in British Columbia. We will develop a community well-being index based on indicators such as: income, education, housing, labor force activity, culture, family relations, and health. We will investigate traditional and non-traditional economic activities on the reserves and we will investigate the success rate of on-reserve, traditional economic activities, which embrace traditional values and beliefs. We will use recent census data (BC Aboriginal community data initiative, census profiles, etc.).
2016 Harold T Caven Professorship Caven Endowment Fund This award will enable Donker to continue his research into the corporate values of Native corporations. While the Western standard of corporate success depends on maximizing shareholder value, Native corporations embrace a more holistic approach. This research explores current and alternative Native values and organizational forms, and how they enhance social and economic prosperity. Alaska Native corporations are the most successful Native-owned companies found in the world.
