Minnesota’s Tech Future
29 Apr 2021
Governor Walz has proclaimed April 2021 as Technology Workforce Month in Minnesota, providing a great opportunity to not only reflect on the important role technology plays in society today, but to also highlight a critical factor in the future success of Minnesota’s innovation economy – the people that comprise our tech workforce.
While the COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact lives and disrupt our economy in ways we couldn’t have imagined just a year ago, it has also underscored how reliant we have become on technology tools and platforms. Technology is enabling the remote workforce keeping our economy afloat, the distance learning keeping students on track, the telemedicine helping to maintain community health, and the communication tools keeping us all connected.
