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]gmail.com. Hope to see you there!
