Objectives and Plans

Everything we do at DEED is driven by objectives for Minnesota's workers, businesses and communities.

Our plans provide a roadmap for action and help assess progress in meeting our goals. DEED's strategic planning results from an examination of the current environment, awareness of the pending challenges and opportunities, and regular check-ins so strategic plans become ongoing time-management tools that tell leaders and staff where to focus energy and resources.

DEED's Strategic Plan

DEED’s Mission: To empower the growth of the Minnesota economy, for everyone.

DEED's Equity Goals

One of our department-wide objectives in our strategic plan is to "reduce the disparities faced by populations with barriers to employment." To get there, we have created equity goals for every program area across DEED.

Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act

The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) provides an expanded platform from which Minnesota can continue to grow and address workforce and economic development opportunities.
