We are pleased to announce that Jade Denson will be taking on a new challenge at the Minnesota Technology Association in her new role as Vice President, Talent Initiatives. Jade’s considerable talents will now be exclusively focused on nurturing and expanding a more diverse pool of local technology talent in the Twin Cities community and creating expanded pathways to employment and career success at many of our MnTech member companies. Jade will also be spearheading the work of the Tech Inclusion Alliance, a new CIO-led consortium committed to enriching corporate technology teams with diverse talent and creating more inclusive environments where BIPOC talent can thrive. We look forward to sharing more about the Tech Inclusion Alliance in the weeks to come. Please join us in congratulating Jade on her new role! We know she will drive positive and lasting change in our community in the months and years ahead.

With Jade transitioning to lead tech talent initiatives, we are now looking for a new Vice President, Programming & Member Experience.  This leader will be responsible for developing and executing programming and events of value to MnTech members and establishing trusted relationships with leaders at member companies to ensure they have a positive member experience.  We think this is a great opportunity for an energetic relationship-builder to make a real impact in Minnesota’s tech community and you can learn more (and apply) for this role here.  While clearly biased, we also think you get to work with a pretty cool team!

Congratulations to Jade on the new role and please help spread the word about our search for a new VP of Programming & Member Experience!
