2023 Keynotes

Meet our 2023 Keynotes!

The Learning Network

The Learning Network publishes hundreds of free teaching resources each school year, including lesson plans, writing prompts, quizzes, films and contests. These resources all use content from The New York Times — articles, essays, images, videos, graphics and podcasts — as teaching tools across subject areas.


After an incident on social media targeted a school teacher and spread like wildfire, #ICANHELP was dreamed into fruition to ensure nothing like that would happen again. They actively develop online safety, digital wellness, digital citizenship and positivity programs to train students how to be Digital First Responders.

The Skillman Foundation

A voice for children since 1960, The Skillman Foundation partners with people to transform education systems, nurturing the brilliance and power of Detroit youth. They have granted over $730-million and have served as a vocal advocate to strengthen K-12 education, after-school programming, child-centered neighborhoods, youth and community leadership, and racial equity and justice.
