League of Women Voters Minnesota is currently accepting applicants for the winter/spring 2012 Leaders of Today and Tomorrow Fellows Program.
Leaders of Today and Tomorrow (LOTT) inspires college-aged and emerging professional women to envision themselves as future leaders. The program is designed to develop young women’s potential to lead professionally, personally, and in their communities through intensive seminars, mentoring, and networking with today’s promising young women.
Over the course of three months, fellows and mentors embark on an exciting journey of partnership, reflection, coaching and inspiration. Activities will include interactive discussions, a variety of guest speakers and one-on-one mentoring.
