EDTalks is a lively series of networking and education events that engages young professionals in public education issues in the Twin Cities. 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.
EDTalks is presented by AchieveMpls and The Citizens League in partnership with Young Education Professionals - Twin Cities. It is sponsored by generous grants from Verne C. Johnson Family Foundation and Bush Foundation.
