Commissioner Steve Grove
We are pleased to welcome Angelina Nguyễn as the Director of Research for DEED’s Labor Market Information Office. She brings a strong background in labor market data as well as experience at various state agencies and a passion for creating strong and equitable communities.
Angelina joins DEED and its Senior Leadership Team after managing the Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry’s Research and Statistics Unit since 2016 – performing analyses and working to effectively communicate data to the public. In addition, Angelina was the liaison with the Federal Department of Labor and Bureau of Labor Statistics. Prior to that, she provided data analysis and research for the state’s Department of Human Services in its Child Support Division.
Angelina also served as the Capacity Director for the Council on Asian Pacific Minnesotans, a state agency established to advise the Governor’s office and Legislature on issues of importance to the Asian-Pacific people of Minnesota. Earlier in her career, she served as a housing navigator for the Northside Achievement Zone, further expanding her lifelong personal and professional commitment to working with diverse, multicultural communities in Minnesota.
“I’m excited to join DEED at this time because our state's labor force is increasingly diverse and rapidly growing. There's so much growth potential,” said Angelina.
Angelina earned a Master of Development Practice from the University of Minnesota’s Humphrey School of Public Affairs. She also completed a Bachelor of Science in Economics and a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science at the University of Minnesota.
We’d also like to thank Oriane Casale, who has thoughtfully served as DEED’s interim Labor Market Information Director over the past two years. Oriane has been an excellent leader for the division and we’re excited she’s returning to her deputy role to continue delivering important research and analysis for the state.
