Leaders Lab is an opportunity to expand your personal and professional lens, it is a program unlike any other.

This diverse program provides access to Minnesota state and business leaders, creating the forum to learn and discuss the multitude of activities happening in our state. Simultaneously, the program will generate relationships with Minnesota’s future leaders - your peers and classmates - extending well outside of the program.

The opportunity was a experience (and privilege) that has shaped my lens and approach to leadership in business, in community engagement, and towards civic duty.

I am excited and eager to start this journey with you.
