This e-case focuses on how demographic changes in Worthington—a rural southwest Minnesota town—led to the identification of a leadership gap between the dominant/minority population. It also highlights the accompanying socio-economic (e.g. housing) and educational (e.g. English literacy) challenges faced by the large number of new Americans arriving in the Worthington area, and the possible responses the community has pursued in alleviating these challenges. There are a number of community-level leadership decisions to identify and address issues brought on by demographic change, including development and implementation of a leadership program targeting diverse community leaders in a dominant white cultural context.
