Call for LOTT Speakers

New for 2024, Leaders of Today and Tomorrow is opening a call for speakers to present at our monthly LOTT workshops.

November 30, 2023, is the priority deadline for speaker applications.


​The LOTT Fellowship Program was designed to support our communities by developing and challenging emerging professional women in the Twin Cities (Minnesota) area to see their role in furthering women's leadership in all sectors of society. Our multi-tiered program encompasses six months, and includes a combination of structured workshops, mentoring, personal development plans, networking, and a community-based project. 


A core component of the Fellowship is the monthly workshops held from January 2024 through May 2024. In these workshops Fellows deepen their understanding of various leadership topics, make connections to their leadership development plans and think about concrete applications to their professional journeys.
