MINN is excited to announce two staff transitions as we move into the new year. First, we extend a warm thanks to Bette Benson for her two years of service in this role. Bette will stay on as Communications Manager until the end of the year, to ensure a smooth transition and plans to stay engaged with MINN through her work on the Programs Committee. We also thank Khalid Eissa for his short, but productive tenue as Volunteer Coordinator. 

Please join us in welcoming our new staff:
Jessica Moes, Volunteer Coordinator 


Jessica beings her role at MINN as Volunteer Coordinator after serving as lead for the MINN IDEA Summit Registration team this year. She has past experience coordinating volunteers for an arts and youth leadership program in Minnesota, and also in Cambodia where she matched visiting volunteers with local projects. 



Sarah Ashkar, Communications Manager


Sarah joins MINN with years of communications, media, and project management experience at nonprofit organizations and grassroots movements at home and abroad. She loves complex systemic analyses of social justice issues, ampersands, and the Oxford comma.
