Thriving by Design worked with community hosts to hold 15 community meetings and conversations in Fall 2018, which in partnership with statewide gatherings and community research, led to over 600 recommendations for equity. Communities were mostly defined by regional indicators, but some meetings convened individuals from similar industries or professions (i.e. educators or farmers). During these community meetings, participants came together to discuss opportunities within their community related to the Blueprint and what it takes to truly build a thriving, inclusive economy. As we move forward into 2019, our team will continue to engage with communities to gain further input and ideas for the One Minnesota Equity Blueprint. Let's continue the conversation towards equity in Minnesota!


We want to hear from your community...
