League’s September meeting will focus on building leaders
How did three of Minnesota’s women leaders become leaders? Did the League of Women Voters play a role in their ascenion to leadership roles? Do they attribute their success to hard work, or luck, or both? What advice do they offer to other women seeking leadership roles?
These questions and others will be the focus of a presentation at the Sept. 20 general membership meeting of the Roseville-Maplewood-Falcon Heights chapter of the Minnesota League of Women Voters. The meeting will feature Minnesota Rep. Mindy Greiling, District 623 School Board Director Kitty Gogins, and Laura Wang, executive director the Minnesota League of Women Voters.
