The Foundation supports its leadership mission to through two flagship programs: Leadership St. Paul (LSP) & the DEI Collaborative. Approximately 2,200 participants have completed LSP over the last 40 years, learning about the issues and trends facing our community. Today, many LSP graduates are serving in leadership roles within local community organizations, corporations and non-profit boards.
