About The Leadership Breakfast Series

Looking to get to the next level in your nonprofit career? At YNPN Twin Cities' Leadership Breakfast series, nonprofit leaders will share with you exactly how they did it, what they learned and what they're looking for in a rising nonprofit leader.

A little bit about Paul Williams, President & CEO of Project for Pride in Living:

Paul Williams is President and CEO of Project for Pride in Living, Inc., one of Minnesota’s premier multi-service community development organizations.  A St. Paul native, Paul brings an extensive background in affordable housing, economic development, education, community organizing and diversity, equity and inclusion to PPL.

Prior to coming to PPL, Paul served as St. Paul’s Deputy Mayor, in the administration of Mayor Chris Coleman. He also spent 13 years leading community development investments for the Local Initiative Support Corp (LISC), both at the local and national levels. Paul began his career as a grantmaker, funding community development efforts for the St. Paul & Minneapolis Community Foundations. Paul is active on numerous community boards, serving as a Commissioner of both the Minnesota Ballpark Authority and the St. Paul Port Authority, as well as a Trustee and Vice Chair of the F. R. Bigelow Foundation.  He also served on the Governor’s Task Force on Housing and the board of the Destination Medical Center in Rochester.  Paul holds a Master’s Degree from the Humphrey School and a B.A. in Government and Philosophy from Saint John’s University.

Leadership Breakfast Registration Lottery

Registration for this event will be open from Monday, November 26 through Friday, November 30. We allow as many people to sign up for the event as possible, and from there we choose 25 participants at random, while also holding space for young nonprofit professionals who identify as a person of color. We do this to keep these events intimate while ensuring everyone has a fair chance to attend a Leadership Breakfast event. If you registered for the lottery and identify as a person of color, you can email to let us know to place your name in the correct lottery.

Our facilitator will reach out to all participants by Monday, December 3 letting everyone know whether or not they received a spot through the lottery. Lottery winners will be asked to submit a question for our speaker in order to confirm their space. Unconfirmed spaces will be given to members of the wait list.

Other Notes:

  • Our media sponsor, Pollen, will be at the event with a photographer and writer on hand.
  • There will be a YNPN member on site to facilitate and help you get the most out of these discussions.
