On the Issues


On the issues that Minnesotans care most about – our families, our jobs and our future – there is wide agreement across the political aisle. Our state must remain one of the best places in America to raise a family and educate our children; we must continue to be the place where entrepreneurs are welcome and the jobs of the future are created; and we must make sure that Minnesota continues to be a leader in the 21st century global economy. The Minnesota Business Partnership — more than 100 CEOs and senior executives representing Minnesota’s largest employers — provides unique and valuable perspectives on the challenges facing our state. Partnership members lead organizations that are national – and increasingly global – in scope. Through the Partnership, members bring their knowledge and experience to bear on issues that are critical to Minnesota’s economic competitiveness and treasured quality-of-life. The Partnership focuses on four primary issue areas — jobs and the economy; education and workforce development; health policy; and diversity, equity and inclusion.
