2020 GlobalMindED
The Future of Work is Diverse, Inclusive, Just and Equitable
GlobalMindED closes the equity gap by creating a capable, diverse talent pipeline through connections to role models, mentors, internships for low-income students, returning adults, First Gen to college and inclusive leaders who teach them, work with them and hire them.
Dr. Brown is a Founder of Great Ball of Light Inc and President of Scorpion Inc. He has over 30 years of experience in Corporate and Government service driving Innovative Research, Team building, Systems Development, and Worldwide Operations. Kevin is an inventor who also brings senior executive-level leadership, entrepreneurship, and hands-on experience in developing and delivering breakthrough technologies, products, and operational capabilities. He earned a Ph.D. developing finite sequences for communications at the University of Leeds, United Kingdom. 

Kevin was born in Miami, Florida, and is the youngest of three siblings. He grew up in a lively and colorful home that treasured family, respect for others, and learning above all else. In his formative years, he lived a hallmark experiment of integration where his black neighborhood elementary school was integrated by children bussed in from other neighborhoods. He credits this experiment not for its educational accomplishment but for his learning to build productive and enduring relationships with people of all walks. He credits the constant challenge of his mother's intellect and his father's keen philosophical approach to just about everything, for creating an environment that gave him the confidence to experiment and the freedom to grow. There were no questions in his home that did not find a question in return. 

Kevin has led numerous ventures from space navigation to developing new energy storage materials. He is known to move adeptly across disciplines and from abstract to practical in search of advocates and solutions. He is also known never to be a stranger to a great idea. In every venture, his purpose is to break with the norm to develop new and meaningful solutions, often where there is no commonly accepted likelihood of success. Kevin believes that business ventures without a purpose for humanity have vanishing value. He views resolving the critical issues of resilience and creating opportunity for all should not just move us to greater incremental effectiveness but become foundational in mainstream living. A great education and life long learning should be a part of mainstream living. Kevin has given his support to issues from the ecology and human resilience to human trafficking. Closer to home, he supports indepth mentoring, music therapy, affordable housing, and the arts. Ventures built on new ideas and human impact are Kevin's driving focus and where he continues to seek new commitments and out of this world solutions.

Responding to Crisis
The 30-Day Justice Plan
As the reset of America is underway, understanding the role you can play in a system of change can be difficult, but we encourage you to listen, learn and be active. To start, instead of, say, a juice cleanse, feed your brain and move yourself with this practical plan over the next month. Here's our guide of what to read, watch, listen to and do in order to be part of the solution.
All  2020 GlobalMindED virtual programs are available NOW on our YouTube channel. 

GlobalMindED and the SDG Impact Fund are delighted to announce  GlobalMindED's Donor Advised Fund. 2020 is the 75th Anniversary of the United Nations 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. Our key time for these outcomes is 2020-2030.

GlobalMindED DAF and the SDG Impact Fund are a powerful combined force for good as the 2019 year comes to a close and we reflect on the gratitude and the commitments we make to the causes we care most about. The DAF offers immense power and flexibility for giving prior to the year's end as you plant seeds of generous intention for 2020 and the decade ahead.

When you contribute to GlobalMindED, you support First Gen students. We have served more than 400 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.
