Greetings!

Emerging from the freezer, put some traction under you this week with an adjustment to restrictions and an update on Workforce! Small businesses are the workhorse of the workforce - (couldn't resist). We'll have Ling Becker and special guest Amanda LaGrange for East Side Connect! Thursday to talk about what's emerging as the pandemic evolves and give us insight on Tech Equity. Then pony up for a Tax Webinar, Neighborhood STAR, and some good times with the SPACC - 153rd Annual Meeting - Feb 18.

Pulling together:
"Jim Crow of the North" Freedom Library event Feb 17
The Sanneh Foundation Gala4Goals - Feb 20
Search Engine Optimization hosted by MN Hmong Chamber - Feb 24
Black Business Summit - Focus on Govt Procurement - Feb 25

Ling Becker from Ramsey County joins us for a workforce update and she’s bringing a surprise guest to focus on Tech Equity - TechDump CEO Amanda LaGrange. Join us as we all surf the ongoing workforce implications of the pandemic. Ling will give us a look at the surface of the workforce challenges and opportunities and show us some of the ways to go deeper.

Join us for a conversation with members, allies, and resource contacts to make sure the East Side stays informed, nimble, and gets the support it needs. You meet, you question, you learn, you repeat... at a new time on Thursdays - 11:00am for 2021.
