Everybody Is Needed
There are countless organizations working tirelessly to improve equity in Minnesota. However, isolating silos mitigate progress. There are several factors contributing to racial employment equity, like: social policies, HR practices, education, transportation, housing and healthcare. But, who’s connecting the dots? Unconscious prejudice permeates the workplace, making it difficult to break through critical barriers. There are simply too many people of color out of work. For the sake of economic success in our region, this needs to change. For the spirit of our community, we all need to work together.
Everybody In Is A Super Connector To Change
Through the development of a comprehensive information and resource hub supported by super connector events, Everybody In will connect a wide range of resources, organizations and private/public sector leaders with the power and commitment to close the racial equity gap in Minnesota.
As the “super connector,” Everybody In will expedite change throughout the seven-county metro area by connecting organizations and opportunities in areas related to: (1) Policy, Outreach and Collaboration; (2) Education and Work Preparedness; and (3) Racial, Ethnic and Cultural Businesses.
With this super connector role, we will successfully deliver our collective impact objective
– an end to racial employment disparities in the region by 2020.
Everybody Can Make Change Happen
We will be victorious if we reduce disparities by 20% every year until 2020. Minnesota will thrive, if everybody gets in it to win it.
