Collaboration is at the heart of the GlobalMindED conference - among educators, entrepreneurs and business leaders, policymakers in government and nonprofits, and first-generation college students themselves. On June 9-10, 2016, hundreds of dedicated professionals and students will come together to learn from world famous keynote speakers and take part in breakout sessions that target educational change. They will share what has worked in classrooms throughout the country and come away with ways to craft innovative approaches in different settings.
Most importantly, they will talk with each other – and build on one another’s successes - as they grapple with preparing today’s first generation students for tomorrow’s workforce. GlobalMindED is about having a collective impact on students who want to succeed at a time when our country needs them to succeed.
