Global Conversations DIGITAL: Latino Immigrants and the Minnesota Economy

November 18, 2020 @ 6:00 pm CST

/ Free

Minnesota Latinos are integral to economies in both the Twin Cities metro and greater Minnesota. As one of the fastest-growing minority groups, Latinos comprise an increasingly important segment of Minnesota’s workforce and have one of the highest labor force participation rates in the state.

Join Gerardo Guerrero, Consul of Mexico in Saint Paul, and Mark Ritchie, Global Minnesota President, as they host an online “armchair discussion” webinar featuring prominent Minnesotans who will speak about the different contributions the Latino community has made to Minnesota and what the future holds.

The program will also feature a special opening message by Martha Barcena Coqui, Ambassador of Mexico to the U.S.

This program will be live streamed on Global Minnesota’s YouTube channel.
