Worker shortages and racial gaps in education threaten our economic future.

Rybak is the author of Pothole Confidential, a book about his 12 years as mayor of Minneapolis — yet his legacy is just beginning.
He now leads one of the region’s most prominent philanthropies as President and CEO of The Minneapolis Foundation. With his understanding of this city and its people, Rybak is hoping to unlock the power we all bring to the table.
