    April 29, 2019

    The average person moves over 11 times throughout their lifetime. As towns in Southeast Minnesota think about economic growth in the region and the current and projected workforce shortages, it is imperative to consider why people choose to relocate or stay in communities. Creating welcoming and inclusive environments is key to economic vitality. Southeast Minnesota Together is pleased to present an opportunity for area residents to explore Minnesota's changing demographics, what it means for economic vitality, how communities are taking action to become more welcoming and inclusive, and discuss some steps they or their town might take to make it a more welcoming and inclusive place.

    The gathering will take place on April 30 from 2-5 p.m. at the Chatfield Center for the Arts. Event details and registration can be found online at z.umn.edu/april30

    By providing regional conversations, SE MN Together has led to new connections between communities, new collaborations on projects, and is helping understand how to best collaborate across sectors and across the region.
