Collaboration and Next Practices: Sharing Power And Responsibility Across a Generation
Jenny Johnson Mike Marcotte
Have you heard of the United Way Emerging Leaders, PROPEL, or Connect? What about Citizens League Emerging Leaders, the Fargo Moorhead Young Professionals Network, or Fuel Rochester? There are dozens of groups focused on reaching out to young professionals statewide, including Minnesota Rising’s 2011 Un/Conference Network Partners. This session, targeted at leaders of emerging leader groups, will provide a forum for young professional organizations’ leadership to network and share their stories, discuss possible future collaborative efforts, highlight lessons learned for improving organizational programming and practices, and reflect on the collective impact of these individual organizations on the future of Minnesota.
Jenny Johnson is the Fund Development Manager of Aeon, an affordable housing developer in the Twin Cities, and is a self-proclaimed lover of Minnesota. Jenny manages Aeon Connect, hosts regular conversations about young professional group best practices for nonprofit organizations, and is the Logistics Queen for the Minnesota Rising 2011 Un/Conference! In her spare time, Jenny loves to eat, work out at her local fitness club, and spend time wandering around her local Target.
Mike’s background includes launching and co-advising the Young Professionals Group at Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Greater Twin Cities, along with co-chairing the Young Alumni group of Gustavus Adolphus College, a position he currently holds. Mike works as an Assistant Producer and Guest Coordinator for “Twin Cities Live” on KSTP-TV, a job he loves because he gets to work on something brand new every day and meets a lot of cool people too.
