Leadership Breakfast with Kelly Matter

Leadership Breakfast with Kelly Matter

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 Kelly Matter, President & CEO of Avivo:

A champion for economic stability and advancement for all Minnesotans, Kelly has dedicated her entire 30-plus year career to ensuring that Minnesota’s most disparate community members have opportunities for health, social and economic wellness. She is an innovative leader in workforce development and social services, committed to creating pathways for careers and jobs for ALL individuals. 

Kelly’s accomplishments are in creating systems that impel innovation, integration and expansion.  The innovative care and service delivery systems she’s spearheaded have positioned three organizations, Avivo, CommonBond Communities, and Goodwill/Easter Seals for strong community outcomes. 

As president and CEO of Avivo, Kelly leads a mission and results driven not for profit organization that provides employment services, career education and chemical and mental health services to 20,000 individuals annually.  With locations in the Twin Cities, Princeton and St. Cloud, Minnesota, residents in 17 counties find culturally-responsive services and support to improve stability and self-sufficiency. 

She is a Board Member of the University of Wisconsin Stout Foundation and chairs the scholarship committee; Board Chair of Stepping Stone Emergency Housing and School Board Member of Totino Grace High School as well as serving on many other advisory committees related to services and outcomes for individuals with barriers to education, employment and independence.

Leadership Breakfast Registration Lottery

Registration for this event will be open from Monday, March 18 through Friday, March 22. 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 protected] to let us know to place your name in the correct lottery.

Our facilitator will reach out to all participants by Friday, March 22 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.

Other Notes:

  • There will be a YNPN member on site to facilitate and help you get the most out of these discussions.
