[Minnesota Rising Dispatch] November 2011

Minnesota Rising Strategy Session Set: December 8

In this month of Thanksgiving, we at Minnesota Rising realize there's a lot to be grateful for in 2011. We hosted our second annual Un/Conference, were featured in the October 2011 issue of the Minnesota Business Magazine, and launched the "Our Minnesota" Cascading Conversations Tour. More importantly, we were fortunate to engage with you, and scores of other emerging leaders across the state of Minnesota!

As we reflect on what we've accomplished and begin to dream up how to best design and implement what comes next, we'd like to invite you and your friends or colleagues into the fold! Join us at the Minnesota Rising Strategy Session to help us brainstorm and create a more engaging web presence, a successful Cascading Conversations Tour, and a method for supporting mentorship for all of Minnesota's leaders. Details below and RSVPs requested to

Contribute to the "Our Minnesota" Cascading Conversations Tour!

Over the next two years, "Our Minnesota" will connect people through a cascading conversations tour, which will collect the ideas of thousands of young Minnesotans from across the state through one-on-one conversations. These conversations will spark fun, engaging opportunities for people to discuss their values and visions for Minnesota's future and to share how they could make that future a reality. Over two years, the number of conversations and places in which these conversations occur will grow exponentially. Each person invited to share their ideas will be asked to continue the conversation with another person, growing an ever-expanding network of people who ultimately build "Our Minnesota" together.

Our objective is to strengthen the network and capacity of emerging leaders in Minnesota and to work toward a shared vision for the future of our state. While we cannot develop a strategic plan for our generation, we can be strategic about our intentions for the Minnesota we will create together. The cascading conversations tour is an attempt to discover what we have in common, to learn about what's working in Minnesota that we can build on, and to uncover how we can work individually and collectively to achieve the future we desire. We invite anyone and everyone who thinks this matters to join us in these conversations.

Download the Cascading Conversations Blueprint here, which includes a Conversation Guide, Feedback Form, and instructions on how to participate. Once you've conducted your cascading conversation, you can share back your feedback online. Please enter your responses from the cascading conversations feedback form, found on page 5 of the Cascading Conversations Blueprint. Thanks for your contributions to our Minnesota!
