2013 Theme: Cultivating Capacity for Collective Leadership

Minnesota is experiencing vast change due to rapid advances in technology, increased political polarization, and diversifying demographics. Exploring these trends can provide us insight into the new kinds of leadership that will be required to navigate and shape a future we can all be proud of 30 years from today. Join Minnesota Rising to consider these changing trends, surface the diversity of leadership styles and perspectives at our disposal, and to identify the collective leadership competencies that can be cultivated in order to lead collaboratively.

This year’s theme builds on learning from the Millennial Leadership: “Different by Design” World Cafe in June 2012, that Millennials offer Minnesota a resilient sense of optimism and a new way of leading amidst changing norms. Through sheer numbers, we will undoubtedly have a significant influence on Minnesota’s future, but in coordinated collaboration, we can leverage the best of what currently exists in Minnesota for a collective leadership that elevates our perspectives and our communities.

Minnesota Rising

Founded in 2009, Minnesota Rising is the network of emerging leaders in Minnesota. Minnesota Rising works to build relationships, trust, and a shared vision for the future of Minnesota, and engages emerging leaders and young professional organizations to work toward that call both now and in the future. Through Minnesota Rising’s online presence, annual Un/Conference, Minnesota Rising Council, and research, we are building the collective capacity of this generation for impacting Minnesota’s future.

Cascading Conversations Tour

The Un/Conference is one strategy that Minnesota Rising is pursuing to engage emerging leaders and young professional organizations in building relationships, trust, and a shared vision for the future of Minnesota. The Un/Conference will engage emerging leaders across Minnesota in an energizing day of innovative learning, skill-building, and relationship-building with peers. The Un/Conference will also continue a two-year statewide tour of cascading conversations to engage emerging leaders in identifying shared values and strategic intentions for impacting Minnesota’s future.
