In the 2019 Special Session, the Minnesota Legislature passed a law directing the Public Utilities Commission to convene a stakeholder group to examine the challenges and opportunities for Minnesota’s energy utilities to attract a diverse workforce with the skills needed to advance a 21st century industry and to increase supplier diversity. Join the leaders of that stakeholder group as they discuss the stakeholder-group process, the findings and recommendations in the group’s report to the Legislature, and next steps to increase workplace and supplier diversity for Minnesota’s utilities.
