Humphrey Fellows from the University of Minnesota as well as several other Humphrey campuses attended a three-day cross-campus collaboration workshop and 40th anniversary event hosted by the Humphrey School of Public Affairs at the University of Minnesota. The workshop focused on the legacy of Hubert Humphrey: fostering human rights, international cooperation, and public service for the common good. University of Minnesota Humphrey alumni Ms. Agnes Igoye (2015-16, Nigeria), Ms. Gonxhe Kandri (2017-18, Albania), and Ms. Ms. Kathya Dawe (2010-11, Brazil) shared their experiences about the impact of their Fellowships and provided advice to current Fellows. Humphrey family members Hubert H. Humphrey III, William Howard, and Ann Howard-Tristani also presented during a session on Vice President Humphrey's core values and William Howard gave the Fellows a tour of the Twin Cities including the notable Humphrey landmarks of his childhood home and the Saint Paul Capitol's Humphrey statue. Throughout the workshop, Fellows participated in breakout sessions on the concept of Design Thinking, contributed to Roundtable Discussions on applied leadership skills, maximizing impact, and pathways for collaboration, and attended a 40th celebration gala. The gala highlighted the extensive impact of the program, both in the U.S. as well as in Fellows’ home countries, and remarks were given from the Dean of the Humphrey School of Public Affairs Laura Bloomberg; Former Vice President Walter Mondale and the Mayor of St. Paul Melvin Carter.
