Introducing Change Networks

We are proud to partner with Bush Foundation to offer three cohort-style programs in Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota that will equip people to lead change in a more equitable and inclusive manner. Participants will not only learn new skills, but also gain new allies who will support them in their work both during the program and beyond.

There are a lot of people across the region working to make their communities better for everyone. They know that sometimes to make things better you’ve got to change the way you get things done.

Change Networks are unique learning experiences for people who want to build the skills and connections that will help them become more effective leaders. They are designed for people who have the desire and potential to make positive changes where they live or work.

As our region becomes more diverse, people who want to make their community better for everyone need to be able to work with folks from all walks of life. That is why our initial Change Network offerings are focused on providing a unique opportunity to learn how to work effectively with people from diverse backgrounds.

There are three Change Network programs, one each in Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota. All programs will run from Fall 2017 to Summer 2018. The application period for each cohort took place in June and July, 2017.
