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 Leondra Mitchell, Executive Director of the Minnesota Women's Consortium:
Leondra Mitchell is a public historian, nonprofit management professional, and the new Executive Director of the Minnesota Women’s Consortium. She lives by the adage, “Vocation is the place where our deep gladness meets the worlds deep needs” and for Leondra, that place is wherever there are layered, complex narratives that incorporate the salient truths of marginalized, excluded, and forgotten peoples.
Organizations she's worked with include: the National Endowment for the Humanities, National Museum of African American History and Culture, UK UNESCO, The St. George's Foundation, Bermuda National Museum, Virginia Humanities, and the Minnesota Humanities Center. Additionally, Leondra has written articles, and led national symposium and working groups on systemic inequities. Currently, she serves on the board the Minnesota Council of Nonprofits, Turning Point, and One Yoga.
Leadership Breakfast Registration Lottery
Registration for this event will be open from Monday, December 23 through Sunday, December 29. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know to place your name in the correct lottery.
Our facilitator will reach out to all participants on Monday, December 30 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.

- Our sponsor, Pollen, will be at the event with a photographer and writer on hand.
