Session 1: Discovering Empowered

Attendees in this session will hear how entrepreneurial educators across the nation have been chipping away at transforming the education system classroom by classroom — the impetus for what started the community of Empowered. Additionally, attendees will learn about what makes Empowered unique and a force to be reckoned with — its Experiential Self-Discovery™ methodology.

11:00 am - 12:00 am

Session 2: Developing your Understanding of Experiential Self-Discovery

Attendees in this session will rocket-power their knowledge into outer space as they learn more in depth about each of the five ESD methodology components: Agency, Principles, Incentive, Action, and Purpose. The components will be brought to life (no, not alien life) through real-life stories of parenting, volunteering, professional events, and more. Attendees will be exposed to conversations about how to bring these elements to life in their classroom, too — through mindset development, instructional strategies, and lesson development.

12:00 pm - 12:00 am

Session 3: Applying my Understanding of Experiential Self-Discovery

Attendees in this session will actively apply what they have learned and experienced in the previous two sessions to demonstrate and assess their understanding of Experiential Self Discovery. Empowered Ambassadors will facilitate small group “roundtable” workshops where attendees will have the opportunity to examine a lesson or activity through the lens of ESD.

1:00 pm - 12:00 am


Angela Maiers is a world-renowned author, entrepreneur, international keynote speaker, and educator, whose transformative message of the importance of mattering has the power to unleash the genius in us all.
