We are excited to announce the addition of Louise Grace to the JustChange team. Louise joins the existing 11 Co-Founding Board Members in accelerating and supporting the great ideas and passion for social good that Ottawa residents have.

Born and raised in Ottawa, Louise has worked for several years in the fields of performance management and evaluation with the federal government. She holds a BSc in Psychology and a Bachelor of Education, and recently completed her Masters in Public Policy and Administration from Carleton University.  Louise co-founded Dress for Success Ottawa, a charity committed to assisting economically disadvantaged women in their re-entry to the workforce and currently sits on the Board of Directors for the Ottawa Coalition to End Violence Against Women.

Originally approached to join the JustChange team last year, Louise reluctantly had to hold off to focus on having and raising her, now, 7-month old beautiful daughter.  Louise was never far away though, always available to the JustChange team and lending her support in any way she could. It’s a pleasure to have Louise’s experience and perspective on the board.  So please join us in welcoming Louise to the team by following her on Twitter @LouiseAnneGrace or reaching out to her at louise@justchange.ca.

If you’re interested in learning and/or getting more involved with JustChange, we encourage you to join us at a #JustDrinks event or simply reach out to any one of our board members.
