Anchoring Equity Summit


"Anchoring Equity" Summit

A Community Conversation on the Changing Demographics and it's Economic Impact on Minnesota

Thursday, March 19

10 a.m. – 1 p.m.

Mankato Room

Intergovernmental Center

10 Civic Center Plaza 

~ Register Below ~

We know that America’s current economic model is broken. As the nation undergoes a profound demographic shift in which people of color are becoming the majority, its ability to achieve sustained growth and prosperity hinges on how quickly we, as a country, can erase lingering racial and class divides and fully apply everyone’s talents and creativity to building the next economy. Equity, inclusion, and fairness are no longer only moral imperatives—now they are also economic ones. 

Monica Bryand, Program Director from the Headwaters Foundation for Justice, will share key findings of the new report - Minnesota’s Tomorrow:Equity Is the Superior Growth Model, written and published by Policy Link.
