HOW TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE
Beginning with a 2016 pilot project in Winona, MN, The Minnesota Chamber of Commerce launched Business Education Networks to narrow the workforce skills gap by better connecting employers with high school and college students, and with higher education and workforce training systems. Our goal is to ensure that businesses have ready access to highly skilled workers they want to employ, and to make certain that students from all backgrounds complete degree and certificate programs in areas where they will have meaningful employment opportunities.
