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 Anita Patel, Leadership Programs Director at Bush Foundation:

Leadership Breakfast Registration Lottery
Registration for this event will be open from Monday September 25 - Thursday September 28. We allow as many people to sign up for the event as possible, and from there we choose 20 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 by Friday September 29 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.
- Bagels and coffee are provided!
