Workforce & Diversity Gaps

As Diversity Navigators, we review and research many essays and reports dealing with the economic growth and how rapidly changing demographics are impacting it. In watching the trends, one cannot predict the future, but one becomes better prepared. Ran across a report published by The Brookings Institute, a nonprofit think tank in Washington D.C. The researchers are looking at Minnesota which has a diverse demographic: Mexicans, Hmong, Indians, Vietnamese, Somalis, Liberians, and Ethiopians. Other people of color include American-born Native Americans, Hispanics, Asians, and African-Americans.
