Each year, the Summit brings together global citizens from nonprofit organizations, NGOs, foundations, the private sector, and educational institutions with a professional or personal interest in international development. MINN Summit attendees will connect, share, and learn during breakout sessions and workshops throughout the day.
Each session will be 60-75 minutes on a topic related to the work of international development. Since we are striving to be inclusive and host a range of voices, we may ask two speakers to present in the same session. If we choose to partner you with another speaker, you will be given support to help facilitate this experience.
By participating as a speaker at the MINN Summit you will receive: -Free admission to the 2018 MINN Summit-Free breakfast & lunch at the conference -Your name & session advertised on the MINN website & social media -Opportunity to showcase your expertise and organization

At last year’s Summit, we hosted a workshop called the “Solutions Salon” (https://www.minnesotangos.org/content/2017-solutions-salon) which allowed participants to discuss common challenges in their work and brainstorm potential solutions. The “Solutions Salon” is a great example of the type of creative and engaging ideas that we hope to include in the 2018 Summit.
