Become the transportation leader and employer of choice for Minnesota's diverse population
We will know we have reached this destination when MnDOT is viewed as a leader for transportation in Minnesota and an employer of choice that delivers value to the public.
To achieve this we will use in-house talent, public input, and external partnerships that value service, excellence and diversity. We will provide development and advancement opportunities for all and empower all employees to be leaders and ambassadors for MnDOT.
Measurement of progress
We will measure our progress by
- Measuring ethnic and gender characteristics of new hires and the overall MnDOT workforce
- Surveying employees to determine their engagement in MnDOT's core businesses
- Assessing key external stakeholders to determine their perception of MnDOT's role as a transportation leader

This plan will outline processes for identifying and prioritizing data and information gaps and needs, identify data management principles, and implement data governance at Mn/DOT.
