[Minnesota Rising Dispatch] November 2014

[#mnrising Dispatch] November 2014

There is much to be grateful for this Thanksgiving month, including the release of insightful findings from the second round of the Cascading Conversations Tour, the energizing pilot of the #mnrising Inquiry Lab: The Future in the Form of a Question (the fourth in our series of Collaborative Competence Learning Labs), and our fifth annualUn/Conference: The Future Is How! We're indebted to an amazing team crew of speakers, sponsors, volunteers, attendees, and of course, all of you. Thanks for your partnership in this work to build relationships, trust, and a shared vision for the future of our state! 

To continue inquiring into what's next for this network, we invite you to join us at our annual year-in-review conversation and celebration. RSVPs appreciated to minnesotarising[at] Hope to see you there!

Targeting talent

Sarah McKenzie, Southwest Journal

The economic development group Greater MSP has launched a new campaign to recruit and retain top talent as a skilled workforce shortage looms on the horizon for the Twin Cities region. The region has about 55,000 job openings and about 100,000 people looking for work in the state, said Greater MSP CEO Michael Langley.

[Open Space] Professional -ism Today

Eric Sannerud

What is the prevailing image of a professional in society? Close your eyes and create a mental image of that professional. At the Minnesota Rising 2014 Un/Conference on Saturday, November 15th at DLR Group in downtown Minneapolis, this is exactly what an inspired group of attendees did.
