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 Virginia Brown, Vice President of Advancement at Aeon:
Virginia joined Aeon in 2016. A proud nonprofit generalist, she has worked in the sector for 16 years with a focus on fundraising, marketing and volunteer engagement. She has worked in housing, higher education, the arts, animal welfare, and capacity building. Prior to starting her nonprofit career, she worked for a nano-second (about 4 years) at General Mills. Virginia received her MBA from the Crummer Graduate School of Business at Rollins College and her bachelor’s degree from Carleton College. She’s really good at convening people, finding solutions, and broomball. (ok, that’s not true. She’s wildly mediocre at broomball.)
Leadership Breakfast Registration Lottery
Registration for this event will be open from Tuesday, June 30 through Tuesday, July 7. 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 email@example.com to let us know to place your name in the correct lottery.
Our facilitator will reach out to all participants on Thursday, July 9 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.
