Praxis Team

Collaboration is a really important part of what Praxis is about – the Praxis Team gives direction and oversight to Praxis whilst the staff team is the team that provides the ongoing execution of projects. Both teams are made up of people giving their time to Praxis. There are many others who are part of a wider team who make stuff happen and lead various different parts – like social media and learning communities. Here are some of the faces you may see connected to Praxis.
