GlobalMindEd Conference

Collaboration is at the heart of the GlobalMindED conference – among educators, entrepreneurs and business leaders, policymakers in government and nonprofits, and first-generation college students themselves. Hundreds of dedicated professionals and students will come together to learn from world famous keynote speakers and take part in breakout sessions that target educational change. They will share what has worked in classrooms throughout the country and come away with ways to craft innovative approaches in different settings. Most importantly, they will talk with each other – and build on one another’s successes  as they grapple with preparing today’s first generation students for tomorrow’s workforce. GlobalMindED is about having a collective impact on students who want to succeed at a time when our country needs them to succeed.

Save the Date: Minds Unlocked: Supporting Intellectual Freedom Behind Bars

Come learn about the realities of correctional censorship and how you can be a powerful and articulate voice in your community. In this interactive webinar, practice real, tested strategies and techniques to support intellectual freedom in seriously unfree spaces.

Jails and prisons don’t always have clear or consistent policies. Advocacy skills honed for an audience of skeptical wardens, sheriffs, and other correctional staff are key to a front-line librarian’s success.

Even if you don’t currently serve those in corrections, you can learn something from this session. See and discuss examples of real-life censorship, and how public attention helps the underserved push back against arbitrary decisions.
