What People Are Saying About Previous Summit Experiences
Everything about this summit was excellent! Well organized, top notch speakers, great vibe, excellent food – wow! I can’t wait until next year!
The panelists who told stories of their work was practical, useful information that will help in our planning and work.
The energy and motivation of everyone involved was really exciting.
This was an incredible convening of many different stakeholders all passionate about a single goal! So many rich conversations and evidence of a movement being built. Too short!
The panels were so full of information that it had to be my favorite part as an information junkie BUT networking with the amazing participants was a very close second.
The presentations about early childhood development and research project about literacy in laundromat spaces were extremely useful. They confirmed much of my experience offering a literacy space at a local library in Detroit.
The diverse collection of thought leaders helped spark a lot of momentum.
My favorite aspect of the Summit was the opportunity to speak to others about the future opportunities. I loved that the summit was small enough to make meaningful, memorable connections.
