We’re driving economic vitality
in Minnesota communities.

The Minnesota Women’s Economic Roundtable, founded in 1979, is a network of diverse women leaders serving at the highest levels of corporate, nonprofit and government agencies. They are nominated by other members and meet monthly for timely presentations on issues impacting the business and the economic vitality of Minnesota and the U.S.

We network with a purpose: to advance our understanding of issues of micro- and macro-economic importance and ways we, as business leaders, can positively impact business and societal change.

Representing 100+ companies in Minnesota
