About the Learning Revolution Project: We provide a huge number of free professional development opportunities each year, largely supported by a terrific set of sponsors. Sometimes we offer events that we truly believe in for a fee for specific purposes, and these opportunities also help us to keep our other events free.

About Angela: As a young teacher, Angela Maiers had an epiphany: people need to matter. They need to be noticed, valued, and honored. Significance is even more important than success. Ever since, the “You Matter” message has been changing hearts, minds, and lives.

In a June 2011 talk at TEDxDesMoines titled “You Matter,” Angela spoke of how these two words can change minds and change lives, if we understand them and leverage them in the right way. This talk has been viewed 120,000+ times on YouTube and ignited a global movement. People reacted powerfully to this call to action, undertaking awe-inspiring quests to address problems in our world.

Choose2Matter was created in response to this breathtaking reaction. It is a powerful call to action that invites people to make “mattering” a way of life. Choose2Matter challenges people in three ways:
  • To ACCEPT that You Matter; own your genius, and know that can make an impact.
  • To ACCELERATE that idea that everyone matters. Notice and honor the genius around you.
  • To ACT to leverage collective genius. Ask: what matters most to you and why? What breaks your heart about it? What are WE going to do about it?
