We all know that Minnesota is a wonderful place to live, work, and raise a family. The state has many strengths to share with the world. Minnesotans are hard-working and ambitious people, and they believe in each other. Dozens of Fortune 500 companies have chosen to do business here, and our economy regularly outperforms that of other states. But the fruits of our economic success are not well distributed. In fact, Minnesota is home to perhaps the largest race-based economic inequity in the nation.
That sobering reality begs a number of questions: What is being done to ensure that people of color have the same opportunities to succeed as white Minnesotans? And how will we get there? During today’s show, we will dive deep into the current status of people of color in various industries. We will discuss what our Governor Dayton and his administration is doing currently to provide support for, to invest in, and to retain people of color.
