Congratulations to these business leaders selected to participate in Leaders Lab. This program is a one-of-a-kind opportunity to engage Minnesota’s developing business leaders. It will enhance personal and professional growth while providing participants insight into the public policy process. It kicked off in April at Grand Rapids with an overview of the state’s economy and tours of Cliffs Natural Resources – Hibbing and UPM-Blandin Paper. Click here for photo gallery.
