Creating a Capable, Diverse Talent Pipeline
2020 GlobalMindED Conference
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.
The Chinese character for crisis is Weiji, meaning danger at a point of juncture. In the Western world, it has been loosely translated as chaos and opportunity. Whatever the interpretation, we are in danger at a point of juncture. And we can respond with the courage of our health providers in the most rapid way possible to create opportunity and save lives. This is our choice and chance to be brave.
This week, members of GlobalMindED's Health Equity team heard from health professionals in NYC (from them and their families) including ICU nurses making masks out of bra cups and cutting gowns. Floor nurses are being trained in acute care. One ER doctor outside of NY drove two hours to Brooklyn and bought 1,000 masks and paid $6.50 a mask with his own money. In NYC, people running the hospitals are working seven days a week, 16 hour days with shortages of masks, ventilators and staff.
@DanjkimMD sent a tweet trying to spread the word that
ICU physicians from around the c
ountry are desperately needed @WeillCornell NYC. They will pay all expenses, hotel, food as they have 1,000 patients with 260 intubated. Since the press is not allowed in the hospitals, we will share what we learn with you.
Businesses and individual citizens stepped up in their own rapid response. Global vodka companies like Pernod Ricard rushed to make hand sanitizers. Anheuser Bush did the same and many other liquor companies are following suit in the U.S. working with the American Red Cross. Click here for more.

Bill Gates shared the exponential growth of the virus on CNN saying we have to shut down the country until at least the middle of May if
we want a shot at fighting COVID-19. The math is clear on this. Click here for more.
Aer Lingus and the government of Ireland are sending their largest planes to pick up medical supplies, driven by volunteer pilots. All seats will be filled with ventilators, masks, goggles and testing kits. Click here for more.
All over America, the NYTimes shares, the homebound are sewing and using bras to make masks which you can learn to do via YouTube. Google the free on line patterns. Click here for more.
Cell-Ed has a
COVID-19 Crisis Response effort to immediately reach the millions who don't have access to remote learning resources and the critical information they need.
COVID-19 Crisis Response launching March 30th with certified health coaching
The Colorado Health Foundation, one of GlobalMindDED's sponsors, immediately repurposed $10 million to the most in need and, simultaneously worked with the State of Colorado to set up the Governors COVID fund, both of which took a 24/7 commitment form a virtual team. Click here for more.
Rapid response is saving lives. If we all summon the courage of our front line health providers in whatever way we can, we will create opportunity from this juncture forward. If you want to write us to share your experience, or a loved one's, of courage over crisis, write us at: email@example.com.
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.

GlobalMindED and the SDG Impact Fund are delighted to announce GlobalMindED's Donor Advised Fund for your year-end giving and planning your 2020 investment goals. 2020 is the 75th Anniversary of the United Nations and and the 25th Anniversary of the Beijing Women's Declaration and Action Platform. Many from around the world are thinking of 2020 as the gateway to our most vital decade for delivering equity, the Sustainable Development Goals, and a world where all can thrive.

When you contribute to GlobalMindED, you support students like Emanuel Walker whose story is below. He was in the class of 2018. Since 2015, we have served more than 300 students by connecting them to role models, mentors, internships and jobs. Your generous support will allow us to take our work 10x and reach these talented students at scale who lack the resources and support we provide. Your support also helps teachers who can't afford the conference fees, faculty at colleges which are under resourced and students who persist at those universities despite food insecurity and/or housing insecurity.
The ILO is calling on individuals and organizations to share innovative ideas and solutions to address the skills mismatch challenge. The ILO Skills Challenge Innovation Call will recognise and support the development of solutions that aim to address the different forms and dimensions of skills mismatch.

Harvard Business School College Programs Overview
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 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).

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.
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.
TAKE THE PLEDGE
