Workforce System Disparities Report
The Workforce System Race and Class Disparities in Minnesota Report (also called the Workforce System Disparities Report) examines statewide disparities specifically among participants in workforce development programs that target recently laid-off and low-income adults and are administered by the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development (DEED). It engages workforce professionals from around the state regarding approaches and recommendations to addressing those disparities.
