2020 GlobalMindED Conference
June 6-8 in Hybrid or Virtual as Circumstances Dictate
Sheraton Denver Downtown
GlobalMindED is a 501(c)(3) clos ing the equity gap by creating a capable, diverse talent pipeline with programs, content and courses for students from the least resourced backgrounds through connections to role models, mentors, internships, experiences and jobs that make them employment worthy, promotion ready and financially fit to navigate a hierarchical world.  We serve low-income students, returning adults seeking badges/credentials, First Gen to college and inclusive leaders who teach them, work with them and hire them.
What Does GlobalMindED 2020 Look Like?
GlobalMindED and the World Academy of Art and Science will be launching Global Learning sessions this week while we are closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation and hope to still have a hybrid event with our original dates or alternative dates that might accommodate an in-person event. However, with the inequities  revealed during COVID-19, the value of our work is clear and the chance to keep others inspired and forward-facing during this time has never been more important. Many of you asked us for daily newsletters in early March and for course content that you can use now through June. We have regrouped to deliver those timely resources.
Next week, we will be working with our  national and global partners, the World Academy of Art and Science, the Foundation for Climate Restoration and the Alliance Center in Denver to offer a full program for Earth Week, including sessions that can be used with and for teachers, faculty and students to activate their involvement in leading climate change and other Sustainable Development Goals. Their fifty minute sessions April 20, 22, 24 respectively will cover Solutions, Movements to Join and Governance. If you can't join us live, we will be posting every session here along with writing topics, homework and follow-up activities. You can also use any of these sessions for CEU credit and you can attend them this year for free as the population we serve has been disproportionately impacted by COVID-19. You will receive the full program for Earth Week and sign up information by session on Wednesday, April 15. 

To our incredible line up of speakers for 2020, we will be working with each of you in the weeks to come to determine your desired roles, session formats and options. Thanks to all of you in the GlobalMindED inclusive community for standing with us and, more importantly, surrounding our incredible students to show them through your mentorship and leadership that the best is ahead. We appreciate our students, speakers,  sponsors and partners who helped us chart the way forward. Onward!

Harvard Business School College Programs Overview
The   Summer Venture in Management Program  is a free one-week residential education program for rising college seniors designed to increase diversity and opportunity in business education.   Using the renowned case method of instruction, HBS faculty lead class discussions on current management issues. You will spend evenings analyzing real-business cases, and use morning study groups and classes to examine and debate their ideas through lively interaction with peers and faculty. The academic program is supplemented by presentations from HBS administrators and alumni who provide information about the impact of an MBA, as well as with social events and meals. You will have the opportunity to live in the dorms to experience the full life of an MBA student. The SVMP program is designed for students from backgrounds historically under-represented in business (e.g., African American, Latino, Native American, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, or Transgender, the first family member to attend college, from a school whose graduates are sometimes underrepresented such as a community college as part of a four-year degree or a predominantly minority college). 
This year's  program will be held June 13th-19th; the application is due on April 21st.

Peek Weekend   Come to HBS for a weekend to participate in our famous case method classes, live on our campus, meet current students and alumni, and get a peek into what an MBA is all about.  Peek is designed for rising juniors, rising seniors or graduating seniors.

Preference will be given to students who have not had academic or professional exposure (including internships) to business or business-related fields.  The   program dates are June 12-14; application is due April 21st.    For more information on Peek Weekend, you can watch the  College Programs Webinar   which showcases all three college programs.

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. 

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. 

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."
