“Conversations with Chanda” is an event series hosted by Chanda Smith Baker, The Minneapolis Foundation’s Senior Vice President of Community Impact. Chanda has over 20 years of experience working in, for, and with underestimated communities. Through events like Conversations with Chanda, The Minneapolis Foundation is leading our community on a tough but revealing path of discovery and civic action. We’re calling on everyone to join us in the hard conversations that seek shared understanding. We know even the most candid dialogue remains essentially talk – we seek to spark actions for our community’s grittiest, most vexing problems.
