Re-construct the Olmsted County 21st Century Community Strategic Plan for Diversity in digital form (November 21, 2015)
I came to learn about that once upon a time in Olmsted County there was a 21st Century Partnership of Olmsted County and its work in the early 2000's of developing a Community Strategic Plan for Diversity. There are a lot of great ideas contained in the report; some of which could address the current climate of racial and religious conflicts. I am still hoping to find a softcopy of the report. Though it's supposed to be on Olmsted County website, it is no longer there. Wouldn't it be worth-while to review the report and the programs and to assess its effectiveness and adoption?

About Beam
  • For the commercial sector, we tend to register startup activities (new companies and new commercial projects) that bring diversification and high-impact opportunities to the area.
  • For the non-profit sector, we wish to shine light on all the organizations and services that otherwise labor under relative obscurity.
  • Our hope is that dmcbeam.org will encourage cross-sector collaborations and creative solutions.

While there are a number of registries in the community, dmcbeam.org's  distinct value is to pilot a database with a data structure and categorizations that answer the questions such as: What organizations or projects/programs in our community that have purported relevance with some of the over-arching focuses put forward by initiatives such as DMC, J2G and Health Improvements?

This database could be used as one of the ways to explore the capacities of the community. If you are someone on an exploratory journey to learn about the greater Rochester community. dmcbeam.org could be an interesting first step.
