To bring a sustainable, systemic change in a complex and dynamic system like India’s education ecosystem, it is essential to work on enabling the education leaders. InvokED is the first ever global dialogue on how to bring this change. 

At InvokED, we put the spotlight on the so far deprioritised, but the most essential topic – leadership in the education ecosystem. Education leaders, practitioners, academicians, market players, teachers and students, from across the globe will come together, to collectively lead insightful, action oriented conversations.

Tune in to listen to unique perspectives. Witness the most innovative and scalable solutions from across the globe. Join us as we lay the ground for a collective effort by Sarkaar (state), Bazaar (markets) and Samaaj (civil society) to enable the leaders!
