Episode 07: Allison Liuzzi and Minnesota’s Changing Talent Landscape
Minnesota’s economy is vibrant, due in large part to our access to excellent human capital. But staying vibrant could be challenging. We are facing a potential workforce shortage in the coming decades. Jobs should continue to grow, while most regions of the state expect to see declines in their working-age populations.
The story of changing demographics isn't a singular experience. Each community across the state is experiencing population changes in different ways. And with population changes come changes in attitudes and perceptions about our communities. In this episode, Minnesota Compass Project Director Allison Liuzzi will discuss changing demographics and their potential impact on Minnesota’s talent.
