Mahnomen City Administrator Mitchell Berg will speed about his experience as an adoptee from Korea during Central Lakes College’s next virtual Cultural Thursday event at noon May 6.
Berg will also share his experience serving as city administrator of Mahnomen on the White Earth Indian Reservation in northwestern Minnesota, with personal vignettes on what it has been like to have been born in Korea, adopted into a family in Minnesota and experience all that cross-cultural experience entails. He will also speak on his work in helping bridge understanding between cultures.
Berg is focused on innovating the public administration profession and recently received his doctorate in public administration. The need to help tribes and municipalities form better relationships inspired Berg to pursue this line of work in his roles as city administrator, instructor, mentor and specialist in the field of community development; diversity, equity and inclusion; and tribal intergovernmental relations.
