Dave Unmacht, executive director of the League of Minnesota Cities and Irene Kao, General Counsel for Intergovernmental Relations at the League will give an overview of the League’s strategic plan for race equity. They will share why the League has prioritized this work and what they are hearing from member cities around the state.
The Bite-Sized Learning events are designed by MCN’s Greater Minnesota team to keep us connected across the state. While the topics are chosen to meet the needs of Greater Minnesota, all are welcome here! Each event will have a short presentation (10-20 minutes) along with plenty of time for networking and discussion on the designated topic. Bring your questions and expertise on the topic! With our cameras and microphones on, we can stay connected, learn, and support one another.
The event will be hosted on Zoom. You will need a computer and a phone as a back-up audio method.
