Presenter: Jouapag Lee

Jouapag is an innovative leader and facilitator working across sectors to advance social justice and equity. Jouapag has over five years of experience working with diverse communities to breakdown silos between nonprofit, government, higher-education, and community/cultural leaders to generate creative solutions that are inclusive and asset-based. 

Jouapag excels at designing participatory processes for groups to build understanding of structural inequity and co-create new ways of thinking so they can take courageous action together. Jouapag’s leadership trainings focuses on transformative change at all levels—the individual, group, organization and system. She believes that what you put into yourself is what you put into your relationships, work, and ultimately the change you create in the world. 

Today, Jouapag serves as the Saint Paul Promise Neighborhood’s Learning, Data and Results Program Manager where she convenes over 80+ partner organizations consisting of funders, county and city government systems, and community nonprofit organizations to create and implement measurable strategies that build a pathway to college and career success for children and their families living in the Frogtown, Rondo and Summit-University neighborhoods. 

Jouapag received her BA in Public Relations from Winona State University and her Masters in Nonprofit Management from the University of Oregon. She previously served as a Board Director with Downtown Languages and is currently serving as a Board Director with the Young Nonprofit Professionals Network-Twin Cities. She was recently recognized as a Wilder Kingston Fellow in 2018.
