Our 2016-17 Season is kicking off on September 19!
We're kicking off our 2016-17 season of EDTalks with a discussion on demographic data - how the demographics of Minnesota and the metro area have changed over time, and what these changes mean for our communities and our classrooms. Join us to network before the program, grab some appetizers to enjoy during the presentations, and participate in our Q&A!
Don't miss this evening of great EDTalks and conversation with Ruth Hamberg, Engagement Specialist for Minnesota Compass and KaYing Yang, Policy Director at the Coalition for Asian American Leaders in St. Paul. Our emcee for the evening is Javier Morillo.

Each program features two compelling 20-minute presentations by cutting-edge educators, youth advocates, journalists, artists and others, along with ample time for conversation and networking.
