A little bit about Tracy Fischman, Executive Director of Prepare + Prosper:

Tracy_Fischman.jpgTracy Fischman joined the organization as executive director in July 2009, immediately after moving to the Twin Cities from Chicago. Prior to working with P+P Tracy served as a consultant to non-profit, philanthropic, and political organizations, providing strategic campaign, project management, and organizational development services.

Tracy has a long history of fostering social justice, with 20 years of experience in public health, HIV/AIDS, civil rights, and women’s rights.  She has an extensive background in policy and advocacy, as well as organizational planning and development. Tracy has worked for organizations such as Planned Parenthood of Illinois as the vice president for public policy, and the Chicago Department of Public Health’s STD/HIV/AIDS Division as the director of policy and legislative affairs.

Tracy currently serves on the Boards of Minnesota Council of Nonprofits and Women Winning, and has also served on the Boards for organizations such as Girl’s Best Friend Foundation, Illinois Health and Medicine Policy Research Group, Citizen Action of Illinois, and Communities Advocating Emergency AIDS Relief. Tracy holds a Bachelor’s degree from Macalester College and a Master’s Degree in Public Policy from the Harris School of Public Policy at the University of Chicago.

Leadership Breakfast Registration Lottery

Registration for this event will be open from Friday April 21- Tuesday April 25. 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 [email protected] to let us know to place your name in the correct lottery.

Our facilitator will reach out to all participants by Wednesday April 26 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!
