This week, rab­ble edi­tor Nick See­bruch sits down with exec­u­tive direc­tor of the Insti­tute for Change Lead­ers, Mike Per­ry. The two dis­cuss the train­ing the ICL offers orga­niz­ers, activists and cam­paign­ers as well as the impor­tance of build­ing rela­tion­ships and sto­ry­telling when organizing.

A lawyer and social work­er by pro­fes­sion, Mike Per­ry is the Insti­tute for Change Lead­ers’ exec­u­tive direc­tor. An expe­ri­enced teacher and skilled orga­niz­er, Mike has served as legal advi­sor to the Métis Nation­al Coun­cil; direc­tor of com­mu­ni­ca­tions for the Nation­al Cap­i­tal Region YMCA-YWCA’s Cap­i­tal Cam­paign; and exec­u­tive direc­tor of the Kawartha Lakes Fam­i­ly Health Team. In 2022, Mike was elect­ed coun­cilor for Ward 3 in the City of Kawartha Lakes.

He is also an alum­nus of the pub­lic lead­er­ship pro­gram at Har­vard, where he is cur­rent­ly a teach­ing fel­low for the Lead­ing Change: Lead­er­ship, Orga­niz­ing, and Action course. Mike had served on Insti­tute for Change Leader’s board of direc­tors pri­or to his appoint­ment as exec­u­tive direc­tor in 2023.
