[#mnrising Dispatch] August 2022

The Great Minnesota Get Together is an annual reminder that the summer months are drawing to a close and the transition to the start of the academic calendar year is upon us. Seasonal changes parallel the shift in seasons of life for so many of us. Changes that are taking place right now. Changes that are newly emerging within us. Read on in this month's Dispatch for opportunities to support and shape how you can invest in your leadership, your entrepreneurial endeavors, and more! 

“Celebrate each season, for you too, are transformed with the turns of the earth.”
-Arthur Dobrin
