Education Minnesota has two opportunities for members this August – one is brand new, and one is a new take on a classic event.

Summer Leadership Seminar

Education Minnesota’s annual summer professional development event is now “Summer Leadership Seminar.” This year’s new event will run July 31-Aug. 2 at the College of Saint Benedict in St. Joseph, Minnesota.

Summer Leadership Seminar is different from the Summer Seminar of years past, with an emphasis on relationship building and shared experiences in a cohort structure.

Leadership pathways include Certified Negotiator Program (CNP) for Teachers and ESPs, ESP A to Z, MEA Professional Development Train the Trainer, Member Rights Advocacy (MRA), Increasing Your Sphere of Influence and the Union Leadership Development Program.

Uplifting Voices – A Racial and Social Justice Event

An exciting new event focusing on racial and social justice will take place Friday, Aug. 4. Uplifting Voices – A Racial and Social Justice Event will be held at the Wellstone Center in St. Paul.

A team of members from our Racial Equity Advocacy program, in addition to Education Minnesota staff, having been planning this event with a main goal of creating a member event that centers interrupting systems of whiteness and white supremacy.

The event will feature many avenues of engagement, including an opening ceremony featuring Education Minnesota officer and member speakers, as well as a variety of sessions that include opportunities to learn, engage and connect. The event is free to Education Minnesota members, including a lunch voucher to be used at a variety of food trucks.

Registration is now open for both events!
