2020 GlobalMindED Conference
June 6-8
Sheraton Denver Downtown
GlobalMindED is a 501(c)(3) innovation network that closes the equity gap through education, entrepreneurship, employment and economic mobility to create a capable, diverse talent pipeline.
As we conclude the heroes of Hispanic Heritage within the GlobalMindED community, some would say we've saved the best for last in 
Dr. Martha Urioste. At 82 years young, Martha is a trail blazer as a 
First Gen graduate, a Latina Leader, a PhD, a global Montessori and Early Childhood education advocate, expert, author and change maker. Martha was among five others over 80 at GlobalMindED in 2019, representing diversity of age as well as other aspects of what makes us unique. We revere her for her courage, her collaborative spirit and her compassion to improve the world. She is, indeed, a wisdom keeper and someone who is a role model among role models in the Latino world and the ever-expanding circle of GlobalMindED inclusive leaders.
During my lifetime, many individuals have supported me in attaining my goals, aspirations, visions, and destiny. First and foremost, my parents and grandparents whose values, support, and sacrifices "catapulted me" out of Raton, New Mexico to Loretto Heights College in Denver as a 16-year-old. With the support of Lena Archuleta from Denver Public Schools, I was hired as a first-grade teacher at Gilpin Elementary School in 1958.

Mr. Tom Ewing followed with an introduction to the Latin American Education Foundation, Rachel B. Noel invited me to participate on "The Panel of American Women", Mr. Bernard Valdez created the "Hispanic Teachers Leadership Trainings" and Bob Pena commenced the CHE (The Congress Of Hispanic Educators). It is on the backs of these leaders, along with Rodolfo "Corky" Gonzales, the activist who hosted the First National Chicano Youth Liberation Conference in Denver, that numerous opportunities are available to us today, and give reason to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month.

As a four-year-old visiting Grandma Juanita on the Agua Dulce Ranch (Sweet Water Ranch) in NM, marveling at the quiet night sky dotted with so many bright stars, I imagined wistfully what it would be like to travel to those stars. Fast forward to the late 80s when a group of committed citizens in Northeast Denver launched a campaign to renovate a former crack house, transforming it into Family Star Montessori School, with me at the helm! I had been shooting for the stars all along.

During Hispanic Heritage month, as we remember those who came before us, I think of the powerful message Mahatma Gandhi shared with Dr. Maria Montessori years ago, "it will be the children who will lead us to peace", as well as the words shared by Dr.Clarissa Pinkola Estes:

ABRE LA PUERTA!

Thank you GlobalMindED for opening the door to our Latino under-served high school and college students. I hope that their participation at the June conference and future leadership will light the way for many more children and youth in the Denver Public Schools, Colorado, the nation and the world!

Each session is based on how things get done, key stakeholders, measurements and ability to bring about change at scale. Participants do not spend time talking about their background; time should be devoted to unique, innovative work and what it has achieved. Sessions will be selected based on the following criteria: 

  • Diversity of people and perspectives 
  • Specifics of how to solve a complex issue in the area of access and equity 
  • Evidence-based solutions to our toughest pipeline problems 
  • Demonstrating a unique, innovative and effective approach 
  • Sharing potential pitfalls and hazards faced in the field 
  • Information is impartial to specific products and services 
  • Providing concrete and specific takeaways Involving the audience in creative and constructive engagement


Join us to recognize the most inclusive leaders in key industries for their innovations and bold actions to promote access and equity for women, people of color, and underrepresented populations in their recruiting, development, senior management on their boards, and in their pipeline strategies from education to employment. 

 
THANK YOU TO OUR 2019 SPONSORS

Each Sunday Conscious Capital shares a new "Sustainable Sunday with the SDGs" blog post

193 countries came together to devise a plan to make the world a better place...now it's your turn. What is an SDG? "Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a collection of 17 global goals set by the United Nations". These goals were created with the intention to transform our world by 2030. They address the global challenges we face, including those related to poverty, inequality, climate, environmental degradation, prosperity, and peace and justice.
828 million people in the world live in slums and the number keeps rising! The growth of cities in our world are ideal for commerce, culture, productivity, and science. However, they also bring about challenges such as declining infrastructure, pollution, and lack of basic services for many citizens. SDG #11 aims to create sustainable cities and communities around the globe.

Join the #NeedHerScience Campaign that is aimed at addressing journal-level gender bias. For decades, studies have demonstrated gender bias in publishing. This may occur at various stages in the process, including at the level of the 
journals. The equitable inclusion of women editors at every level is long overdue. Addressing journal gender bias starts at the top. 

AMWA is a strategic partner for the Need Her Science Campaign which is part of the Be Ethical Campaign. More information is available at www.SheLeadsHealthcare.com.

The goal: To raise awareness about gender bias in publishing and share with stakeholders, including journal editors and owners, the overall number of scientists, healthcare professionals and others who have taken the pledge. The pledge can be taken anonymously. Educators and others are encouraged to take the pledge and share information about this issue with colleagues and trainees. 

GET INVOLVED 
Here are 3 quick and easy things you can do to join the #NeedHerScience Campaign: 1. Disseminate the infographic Tips for Publishing in Medical Journals. 
2. Take the #NeedHerScience pledge. 
3. Encourage others to take the pledge. 

TAKE THE PLEDGE 
PLEDGE: "As part of determining where to submit my manuscripts, I will look at the list of editors and consider whether a journal has equitably included qualified women at every level."

iGIANT® and GlobalMindED are excited to announce a challenge competition to explore the impact of gender/sex on innovation and novel technologies in our lives. By partnering together, iGIANT and GlobalMindED hope to inspire young emerging leaders to develop innovative ideas regarding gender/sex within health, IT, transportation, and retail.The winner will be announced at the iGIANT Design Summit in San Francisco November 21, will receive $250, and will have the opportunity to bring their idea to fruition with the help of iGIANT and its network of professionals.

The National Academy of Medicine defines "gender" as a person's self-representation as male or female based on social interactions and "sex" as based on one's genes. The environment can impact gene expression which is known as "epigenetics."

Gender/sex impacts every aspect of our daily lives. The same dosage of medication, for example, has different effects on men compared to women, resulting in a need for us to understand these differential effects in the research and development process before doctors can effectively dose their patients. Similarly, although some products (such as shoes, sports equipment, or cars) seem to have separate designs for men and women, it is important to distinguish between a simple change in aesthetics and a design that actually addresses the biological factors (ie, body composition, bone structure, metabolism) that cause men and women to experience these products differently. Each small detail and seemingly insignificant change in design can heavily impact how we perform at work, school, or in our leisurely activities.

GUIDELINES

Participants:

The challenge is open to all students

Design Requirements:

The design elements can include:
Programs (ex: an educational symposium);
Policies (ex: a policy on inclusion);
Protocols (ex: athletic training protocols or medical guidelines); or
Products (ex: sports equipment, clothing, tools, hardware and machine-human interfaces).

Solution Requirements:

The solution should:
Demonstrate the impact of gender/sex on a design element.
The concept for the design element needs to be clear, concise and actionable.

Submissions (approximately 1-2 pages in length) are due November 7 to contact@globalminded.org. We look forward to your ideas!
