Closing the Equity Gap Through Education, Entrepreneurship and Employment
GlobalMindED is an educational and research non-profit organization committed to creating a capable, diverse talent pipeline for first-generation-to-college, at-risk and low-income students and job seekers. By incorporating research and implementing action based on our results, we aim to improve access and equity in K-12 and higher education through improved graduation rates and sustainable careers. Our mission supports the federal Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) and its focus on college and career readiness.
GlobalMindED focuses especially on first-generation-to-college and low-income learners to address and reduce the significant obstacles they face; one-third of all college students in the nation fall into this category. We provide professional development workshops and career opportunities to benefit first-generation students, those who work with them and those who hire them.
GlobalMindED is a 501(c)3 education equity and innovation network that closes the equity gap through education, entrepreneurship and employment to create a capable, diverse talent pipeline. Our mission is to help first-generation and low income college students achieve career success by providing them with professional skills, resources, networks, mentors, experiential learning and social support via a national and global conference held annually in Denver, GlobalMindED Campus collaboratives and campus interventions that make grads employment worthy, ready and capable for promotion pathways once hired as graduates.
