Molly Hoskin, Board of Directors, Secretary

With a background in strategic marketing and communications, Molly has provided her expertise in brand development, marketing strategy, and creative services for a broad range of industries and markets. Her experience spans across startups to Fortune 500 companies, nonprofits and the public sector.  

She’s most inspired by the small businesses, local entrepreneurs, and community organizations within Twin Cities Metro Area that fight to keep cultural diversity thriving, provide opportunities for youth, and strive to build the local economy from a grassroots level.

Molly’s first experience abroad was a summer spent backpacking through Europe with dear friends — a trip that changed her life in dramatic ways. Since then, she’s found herself traveling, studying, and working abroad for a good part of the past 10 years. Molly believes global travel is crucial for cultivating awareness and gaining a broader, diversified perspective on this world we all exist within.
