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 Tom Streitz, President & CEO of Twin Cities R!SE:

Mr. Streitz also served as Deputy Executive Director of the Minneapolis Public Housing Authority (MPHA). Prior to his service at MPHA, Mr. Streitz was a government relations attorney for the Legal Aid Society of Minneapolis and served for six years as legislative Counsel to the United States Senate.

Leadership Breakfast Registration Lottery

Registration for this event will be open from Wednesday, August 15 - Monday, August 20. 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 August 24 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.

What you need to know:

  • 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.
