Educate Maine Symposium

March 21, 2021

Opportunity to present

Each December Educate Maine convenes hundreds of educators, business leaders, policymakers, and diverse citizens from across our state’s communities at the annual Education Symposium. This year they celebrate an exciting milestone: 10 years of increasing the educational attainment and career readiness of Maine people.

Educate Maine is looking for presenters and invite you to share your best strategies, innovative ideas, and in-depth knowledge with Maine’s education and business leaders. Raise your voice and contribute to our state’s shared knowledge by becoming a presenter.

Seeking proposals that speak to: 

·    Business and education partnerships that strengthen pathways into Maine’s workforce

·    Diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives that have a positive impact on education and workforce outcomes (emphasis on racial and gender equity)

·    Highlighting student leaders and/or student groups who are making a difference in their school communities 

·    Policies in Maine or elsewhere that could help achieve Maine’s statewide education attainment goal
