Featuring speaker Mark Ritchie, President – Global Minnesota

As we navigate this ever-shifting COVID world, we are reminded that while we may act local we are always part of a global community. Regardless of organizational size, key issues such as immigration, visas, and staying innovative through new talent are front and center.

In this session we tap the vast experience of Mark Ritchie, President of Global Minnesota and past Secretary of State. He will share with us:

  • Thoughts and prognostications related to global talent trends
  • What forward-thinking MN organizations are doing to embrace the globe when it comes to talent
  • Increasing use of the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) as specific benchmarks and targets MN companies are adopting in a number of areas including: inclusive cultures, equity, climate, poverty, wellbeing, and more.
  • How HR leaders can better leverage public, private, and legislative opportunities to step into the local and global talent market.

Join us to gain new insights, share your own ideas, and further the conversation of HR evolution in the new “normal” as well as the future of being human in the workplace.

Mark Ritchie is president of Global Minnesota, a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization devoted to advancing international understanding and engagement. A graduate of the Humphrey School of Public Affairs and Iowa State University, Mark served as Minnesota’s Secretary of State from 2007 to 2015.

He co-chairs the public-private partnership working to bring the 2027 World Expo to Minnesota and serves on the national board of directors for Expo USA, Communicating for America, the U.S. Vote Foundation, the Jefferson Center for New Democratic Processes, and  the U.S. Election Assistance Commission Board of Advisors.

In 2019, Mark was appointed by then Secretary of the Army Mark Esper to serve as Civilian Aide to the Secretary of the Army (CASA) from Minnesota.
