Decolonizing Development looks beyond concepts of representation, diversity, and counting. In this workshop, we will first explore what we mean by decolonizing development. Next, we will discuss tools and resources to conduct power, historical, and structural analysis. Last and most importantly, we will explore how we can incorporate a decolonizing framework into the proposal development and programmatic work we do as international development experts. This workshop is intended for experienced practitioners interested in honest explorations on how we – as a sector – can increase our global impact. Please register in advance!

Through a combination of lecture, discussion, and real-world context, you can actually begin to develop the footprint of a successful market entry plan for your business.
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.
