The transition into this new season provides timely inspiration to reflect on the many small and large changes taking place in our lives and communities. At Minnesota Rising, we're shape-shifting our annual Un/Conference, which has traditionally been an energizing way to connect with others and inspire creative ventures, because we want to keep innovating on how to help you and other emerging leaders to move your efforts to impact Minnesota's future even further and faster! Join us at the IDEA GENERATION workshop at Impact Hub MSP on November 14 to be inspired and to inspire others. We're looking forward to hearing what's (a question, an idea) growing in you and hope you'll consider it inspiration for exploration at the upcoming IDEA GENERATION!
