The GlobalMindED Conference is bringing together students, educators, policymakers, business professionals, and
thought leaders from around the world to share innovative best practices in Denver on June 18-19, 2015.

We invite you and your institution to be a part of the GlobalMindED Conference to help inform the dialogue on improving the college to career pipeline. This is a unique opportunity to share knowledge and best practices with peers, national and international, around improving college entrance, retention, graduation, and career satisfaction.

This innovative education conference:

  • Brings national and international perspectives and best practices to a global stage.
  • Features experts from across industries to promote a deeper understanding of the K-12 to career pipeline and underlying policies.
  • Engages student leaders to solve education’s biggest problems and present best solutions to conference-goers.
  • Establishes important networks and connections among education leaders.

Experts will facilitate sessions to challenge traditional ideas and generate possibilities around the following conference tracks:

  • K12
  • Higher Ed
  • Workplace
  • STEM
  • Students
  • Policy
  • Technology

In addition, the conference will bring together 100 first generation to college students, which will present a unique opportunity for companies to recruit from a large pool of top-flight students with diverse backgrounds. We hope you will join us by attending this event along with one or more of your most promising first generation to college students.
