    It's no secret that Minnesota's population is aging rapidly and our workforce is declining in size, with potentially seismic impacts on business, industry, and the state's overall economic health. Given these realities, how can we keep older workers engaged and productive in the workforce, contributing vital skills to help Minnesota thrive in this changing landscape? What are the conversations that need to happen - between employers and employees, and across rural and urban communities - to tackle this growing challenge?
    Join us to explore how these dynamics are uniquely impacting the Iron Range and surrounding communities.
