Our Work

“The Pisces RPM team were invaluable in organizing and managing our recent workshops. They did an excellent job moderating a dynamic group of Arctic and Northern researchers, and individuals from government and Indigenous organizations. They provided a detailed report of the workshop outcomes that encompassed the diverse nature of the workshops. The Pisces team were wonderful collaborators and brought ArcticNet’s vision and goals to life through this project. We look forward to collaborating again in the future!”
