Announcing 2015 MINN IDEA Summit Keynote Vice President Walter Mondale

MINN invites you to the largest gathering of global practitioners in the state. Friday, October 16, 2015. Doing Global Good, Better!
Join MINN and keynote Vice President Walter Mondale for a dialogue on international refugee issues, including Minnesota's role in this arena, both past and current, and more at the 2015 IDEA Summit.

Walter F. Mondale’s record of public service includes Vice President of the United States, U.S. Ambassador to Japan, U.S. Senator, and Attorney General for the State of Minnesota. In his first year as Vice President, after visiting camps in Thailand sheltering refugees fleeing the Vietnam War, Mondale worked to significantly increase the number of people accepted for resettlement into the United States, as well as increase funds to build refugee camps in neighboring countries. His efforts helped provide resettlement opportunities for 1 million refugees, including in Minnesota. Mondale has become a director of several non-profit and corporate boards. He serves as chair of The Maureen and Mike Mansfield Foundation’s International Advisory Board. He is currently Senior Counsel with the law firm of Dorsey & Whitney LLP, headquartered in Minneapolis.
