The Barristers’ Breakfast brings together members of the greater MSP legal community to support children at a critical point in their development. Joyce Preschool and the MHBA invite you to join us for this benefit breakfast, which includes networking, coffee and light breakfast. The Barristers' Breakfast is an opportunity for the legal community to support tomorrow's leaders, while raising awareness of the critical role early childhood education plays in building a more diverse professional community in Minnesota.
Our keynote speaker for 2017 is R.T. Rybak. R.T. has served as President and CEO of The Minneapolis Foundation since 2016. As leader of one of the oldest and largest community foundations in the country, Rybak oversees the management of nearly $700 million in assets and the average annual distribution of more than $50 million in grants.
Before leading The Minneapolis Foundation, Rybak served as executive director of Generation Next, a coalition of civic, business, and school leaders focused on closing the educational opportunity gap in Minneapolis and Saint Paul. Prior to that, he served as mayor of Minneapolis from 2002 to 2013.
