Rural Minnesota is a great place to live and work. As rural Minnesota attracts new people, we need to ensure our nonprofit organizations and communities welcome an increasingly diverse population. How can we support the growing racial diversity of our communities? Projections show that the percentage of people of color in rural communities will double in the coming decades.
We need to make sure the makeup of our organizations reflects our respective communities at all levels. To recruit and retain a diverse workforce, we need to intentionally reflect on whether the spaces we operate in are welcoming to all people. How does your community and organization welcome people of racially diverse backgrounds? What else can you be doing to further establish racial equity? Whether you are new to racial justice or need a refresher to reaffirm your commitment, this will be a space to gather resources you can apply in your sphere of influence.
The event will be hosted on Zoom. You will need a computer and a phone as a back-up audio method.
