Juliet Jackson is the Director of Culture and Inclusion at the Region of Peel and has held many leadership positions, which has contributed to her becoming an accomplished strategic leader, coach and influencer in the Public Sector. Director of Integrated Community Access, Director of Human Services Strategy and Service System Manager for Affordable Housing in Peel are a few notable leadership examples. In addition, Juliet sits on a number of advisory boards and committees and has been the President of the Peel Children’s Aid Society Board since June 2017 and is actively supporting the development of an Afro-Canadian Wrap-around service model for child welfare.
In February of 2017, the Office of Culture and Inclusion was established. Juliet led the development of Peel’s Culture Strategy and continues to lead its implementation. The Strategy aims to influence a shift in organizational culture, creating a solid foundation for staff to unite around one shared vision for the Region of Peel; “Community for Life”. The Region aspires to be open, dynamic, innovative, collaborative and inclusive, but disruption of the status quo and behaviour change at every level of the organization is required to be successful.
