2016 Voqal Fellow Spotlight: Hlee Lee-Kron

September 2, 2016


The Voqal Fellowship is an investment in a new generation of social entrepreneurs. Fellows receive financial resources and mentoring to help bring an early stage idea to life. The Voqal Fellowship is an opportunity for young innovators to test assumptions, research target audiences and build strong business plans. This week we take a look at one of those fellows, Hlee Lee-Kron.

Hlee is a community-based, globally-minded storyteller in the Twin Cities. She is a photographer, communications professional and production specialist with a passion for telling community-based stories with a global twist. She has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Broadcast Journalism from the University of St. Thomas and has more than ten years of experience working with nonprofits and storytelling. In addition, HLEE runs her own business (www.hleelee.com) where she works primarily with nonprofits and small businesses to help them tell their story.

Hlee’s project, Mix It Up: Diversity in the Workplace, is a collection of web tools that present real-life experiences in order to provide an in-depth understanding of what people of color face on a daily basis in the workplace.
