Event Description:
Lee Roper-Batker is President and Chief Executive Officer of the Women’s Foundation of Minnesota. Under her leadership since 2001, the Foundation has increased its grantmaking by 100 percent and endowment from $8 million to $25 million; established girlsBEST (girls Building Economic Success Together) in 2002, the first permanently endowed fund just for girls at any women’s foundation in the world; and launched MN Girls Are Not For Sale in 2011, a $5 million cross-sector campaign to end sex trafficking, which has resulted in a sea change in Minnesota’s response to this issue and leveraged a $27 million state investment ($5.40 ROI).


Well-respected among women’s foundations around the world, Lee founded and serves on the Executive Committee of Prosperity Together, a nonpartisan coalition of public women’s foundations who at the White House in November 2015 publicly committed $100 million to improve the economic security of low-income women and their families in America.

Prior to joining the Women’s Foundation of Minnesota, Lee held leadership positions in the anti-poverty, social justice and disabilities communities, and she owned her own business. Lee graduated summa cum laude from Augsburg College and studied at the Higher Trade Union College (Soviet Union) and Program in Global Community (Central America).
