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 Bo Thao-Urabe, Founder and Executive and Network Director of the Coalition of Asian American Leaders (CAAL):
Bo Thao-Urabe is a practice-based possibilian who focuses on creating community-centered, asset-based solutions and transforming practices so that there is meaningful change for those most impacted by systemic inequities. Having immigrated to the United States as a refugee child after the Secret War in Laos, Bo’s lived experiences have continuously shaped how she creates to ensure communities can fully participate in, contribute to, and shape our democracy. Her extensive leadership experiences include building and leading local, national, and global efforts.
She is Founder and Executive and Network Director of the Coalition of Asian American Leaders (CAAL). Previously, she served as Senior Director at Asian Americans/Pacific Islanders in Philanthropy (AAPIP), leading their social justice philanthropy work. She served as executive director of several other nonprofits before that. This dynamic change-maker also co-founded the Asian Pacific Institute on Gender-Based Violence, Hmong Women Achieving Together, Sisterhood Laos, RedGreen Rivers, Building Our Future: A Global Campaign, and the Building More Philanthropy with Purpose (BMPP) Giving Circle—also fondly referred to as the “Bad Mo Pho Phamily” among Giving Circle members. Bo’s board service currently includes Propel Nonprofits, Drake Bank and The Minneapolis Foundation.
