Luz Maria Frias Named in the Top 100 Overachievers List by Twin Cities Business
YWCA Minneapolis President and CEO Luz Maria Frias has been selected by Twin Cities Business as one of the top 100 overachievers 2019.
Here's why she was selected:
"A lawyer, Luz Maria Frias joined YWCA Minneapolis as CEO two years ago. She’s a veteran racial-equity advocate, and expanding opportunities for people of color is among her top priorities at YWCA. The nonprofit, with a history of convening people to discuss issues of race, is going one step further. Beginning in December, YWCA is launching the “It’s Time to Act!” series to focus on concrete steps people can take to support inclusion. Frias also is increasing understanding about race and social justice issues as a principal on MPR’s Counter Stories podcast."
