Rep. Kristin Bahner (DFL) District: 34B*

"Really encouraging to see these great mentorship relationships taking off, with over 20+ years in the industry too often I have been the only woman in the room but that needs to change. Women bring such unique perspectives and incredible value to high-performing teams. It can even lead to the MN House where we are rewriting MN IT statute for a modern world and embarking on new opportunities in Cyber for the State of MN! GO, ladies, we need you!"
