Strategic Planning

It was a privilege to work with PointNorth and their team on our year-long diversity, equity, and inclusion and strategic planning process. They were thoughtful and communicative as they led the PAL team and Board of Directors. They helped us move forward as an organization with intent. Would highly recommend them and look forward to partnering with them again in the future.
