Excited to make Greater MSP the best region to work, live, and play? The Make it. MSP. initiative invites you to join in the effort during their upcoming Makers Work Sessions. The first one will be hosted at the Impact Hub next week - see below for more details and to register!
Make it. MSP. - Makers Work Session 1
Impact Hub MSP, Minneapolis, MN
Minnesota is entering a new demographic era, in which the most competitive global regions are doing all they can to develop, retain and attract talent. However, no collaboration existed here in Minneapolis-Saint Paul to retain and attract talent. Make it. MSP. is a rally cry for the region organized around goals to improve social inclusion, support innovative talent, connect talent to our community, connect talent to employers, and close near-term talent gaps.
A growing network is working in collaboration to make progress and launch Make it. MSP. this fall. This specific team of community makers - from entrepreneurs and artists to people-powered young professional networks and community organizations - will work between June and October on a set of shared priorities identified during a series of spring planning sessions. The team will learn about each other and discover how to work together, develop pathways to welcome people to the region and keep them here, and connect people to community experiences that meet their needs and tap into their passions.
Sessions 2-4 will take place on the final Tuesday evenings of July, August, and September at the same time, 5:30-7:30pm. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions, concerns or ideas.
