“Instead of asking people questions about what didn’t work, we ask questions about what could be possible. What did you learn? What could be different?”-Bao Vang, President & CEO of Hmong American Partnership
The Hmong American Partnership (HAP), located in St. Paul, MN, has a mission of empowering low-income communities to overcome racial inequities and generational poverty. The way it’s achieving that mission is both innovative and inspiring.
From creating a social enterprise that trains immigrants and refugees to excel in the hospitality industry to developing a model for a charter school to improve how it serves its students, HAP continues to come up with new ways to serve through a relentlessly entrepreneurial mindset.
