I moved to Duluth from Iowa without knowing anyone. As a business leader, having connections in the community is important to me. Leadership Duluth is helping me make amazing connections with a really diverse group of people.

The day we visited Life House and Chum was especially impactful for me. These are really challenges in our community, and we see the people who are doing the work to address these challenges. Because of my Leadership Duluth experience, there are organizations we’ve learned about where I would like to go back and volunteer.
