Margaret Anderson Kelliher to speak at May 16 celebration

Margaret Anderson Kelliher
Margaret Anderson Kelliher is our keynote speaker at our 50th anniversary celebration, Monday, May 16, at the Bigwood Event Center. Her speech title is: Women and the Future of Minnesota’s Workforce: STEMming the Tide.

There’s no doubt technology will play a major role in future workforce development. Many of the careers our young children will have don’t even exist yet. The Minnesota High Tech Association helps prepare for the jobs of the future by creating the best environment possible for Minnesota technology companies. Educating our future workforce is a big part of the MHTA mission.

MHTA President Margaret Anderson Kelliher will speak about new research that shows Minnesota has the biggest demand in the country for a highly educated, advanced workforce. That’s why we need to encourage our young people—particularly girls—to seriously consider STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) careers.

Margaret Anderson Kelliher joined the Minnesota High Tech Association as its president and CEO earlier this year after a 12-year career in the Minnesota House of Representatives. As Speaker of the Minnesota House, she was a champion for the education and workforce issues that are central to the mission of MHTA.

She is sure to inform, inspire and entertain us!

Anderson Kelliher's speech is at 7:30 p.m. Her presentation is free of charge and open to the public.
