This event aims to:

  • Build a strong and cohesive community of professionals of Asian Origin
  • Network & share best practices with Asian Employee Resource Groups
  • Engage with Minnesota State Government agencies such as CAPM for advancing the interests of Asians at the state level

The program will feature a keynote address by Marilyn Carlson Nelson, Chairman and former CEO of Carlson, and a keynote address by Sarena Lin, President, Cargill - Feed & Nutrition, as well as roundtable discussions on a variety of topics addressing concerns of the Asian community.
