Article Spotlight 

As David Brooks mentions in his New York Times editorial "How We Are Ruining America", the barriers to educational equity expand across more areas than one may think. He discusses how zoning restrictions, the college admissions structure, and cultural barriers all contribute to an unequal playing field in education. Brooks' article details information from Richard Reeves of the Brookings Institute. Reeve's book "Dream Hoarders" explains the structural dilemma of how the educated rig the system.  He also cites Elizabeth Currid-Halkett's book "The Sum of Small Things", which addresses the barriers of class. At GlobalMindED, we recognize and confront all of these barriers to a diverse and inclusive talent pipeline. We collaborate with inclusive thought leaders and create scalable solutions, so that all students will be prepared for the jobs of the future

Post-Conference Feedback:

"[Our] students ... loved the feeling of being a full conference attendee - not just 'learning' as a 'student' - and felt empowered that they had something to offer."

"The overall experience was first rate. It was easy to get prepared and comfortable, thanks to how well the event was organized and executed."

"The students were poised, quite mature and professional, and clearly committed to bettering their own lives, as well as contributing to the lives of others. Wonderful."  
"Being at a meeting with so many diverse people - in terms of their education and participation, industry, governments, and non profits - provided great and unique opportunities for networking." 
"The mix of people that the event brings together is like no other I have ever seen."
