"Holding Relationships as Sacred" is the theme of Joy Persall, who will speak at a public forum at Union Church. Ms. Persall holds an M.A. in Organization Management and Development. As a woman of Ojibwe Metis’ descent, mother, grandmother, gardener, and seed keeper, she is a gardener of people, teams, and organizations. Ms. Persall brings a depth and breadth of experience in leading change toward equitable and inclusive systems by believing in our power to look within ourselves, and to listen to all voices with a sense of curiosity. These are all timely themes for our community. We invite and encourage the public to attend.
