Meet The Board

Keisha-Ann Shaw Hill


Our Founder Story

In 2019, with nothing on the horizon for Black History Month again, our founders decided to lead the change they felt was needed. They organized a Black History Month kick-off event, with collaborators and partners. In February 2020, they added a team of volunteers and organized three events: The Art Engagement Project targeted for youth, Voices of Black Women in Business for the business ecosystem, and a BHM Celebration at Five Points for the community. These events and their passion have sparked discussions and conversations about inclusion and diversity all across Simcoe County and beyond. Our three co-founders (Michèle Newton, Stephanie Gourlie and Shelly Skinner) incorporated Making Change as a not-for-profit organization in July 2020.
