About the Event

What do you imagine when you think of closing this region’s growing racial and economic disparities?

  • Do you imagine a world where employers are able to meet their talent needs with local hires?
  • Do you imagine visiting thriving cultural corridors, rich with ethnic diversity, businesses owned and operated by people of color, and a housing mix that allows multiple generations to thrive in the neighborhoods of their choice?
  • Do you imagine having transit systems that support employers and employees alike with efficient access to work, shops, and services from all MSP neighborhoods?

We do. We also imagine you, working alongside, us, and many other regional leaders, sharing your experiences, expertise, and the data that both motivates and challenges your organization, to help build peer learning and action networks to support real change, in real time.

What gets measured gets done, but it must get measured frequently, visibly, and with a lens toward action. Join us immediately following the Critical Issues Forum and the release of the 2018 Regional Indicators Dashboard for an Ignite Session to learn more about the new Center for Economic Inclusion and explore ways that we can support and partner with your organization to imagine new ways of tracking and using data to actualize an inclusive, growing economy.
