Construction Industry Workforce and Targeted Business Goals

Date: Friday, February 14, 2014 12:00 PM to 1:30 PM
Venue: Minnesota State Bar Association  Minneapolis, MN United States  Get Directions
Total Price: $30.00


Contractors and their attorneys face a bewildering array of local, state, and federal laws pertaining to the hiring of women, minorities, and other groups to work on construction projects.  Similarly complex laws govern goals associated with the participation (typically as subcontractors) of businesses owned by minorities, women, and members of other groups in construction projects.  Commissioner Kevin Lindsey from the Minnesota Department of Human Rights will lead a panel discussion among industry and government leaders regarding these issues, including the new goals, and how the industry has responded to the new goals.  The panel also will discuss how these issues will be addressed during construction of the new Minnesota Multi Purpose Stadium.  The panel also includes Velma Korbel (Director of the Department of Civil Rights, City of Minneapolis), Alex Tittle (Equity Director for the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority), and Lynn Littlejohn (Director of Community Affairs, Mortenson Construction).  Jesse Orman from the Fabyanske, Westra, Hart & Thomson law firm will moderate the discussion.  Construction attorneys and other industry professionals will benefit from a deeper understanding of these issues.  Discussion, questions, and input from the audience are welcome.
