    Author Simon Sinek writes that every organization on the planet “always functions on three levels. What we do, How we do it and Why we do it.” Sinek believes that when those three mindsets are aligned, we are able to inspire, innovate and lead. But he also believes that very few organizations (and people) actually think about what they do, and how and why they do it.

  • Careers in the STEM fields continue to be some of the highest-paying and fastest growing in the nation. Encouraging our kids, especially girls and students of color, to excel in math and science is the first step in ensuring America's innovation and competitiveness in an increasingly high-tech economy.

  • I care about public schools in Minnesota because I believe a good education is key for the personal success of our children and the economic vitality of our state.

  • We all contribute to a child's education, directly and indirectly. Directly, we must support responsible public policy. Indirectly, we must promote a responsible educational culture. In both cases, we need all hands on deck.
