Pamela Briskman

Galileo Learning
Vice President of Education
Each spring, Galileo Learning hires, on-boards, trains, and leads nearly 2,000 staff to teach innovation and design-thinking skills at summer programs throughout California and Illinois. While one might expect this to turn into a mess of confused culture, misunderstood instructional approaches, and operational snafus, Galileo is actually known for its inspiring culture and staff and repeatedly appears on “best places to work” lists. Glen Tripp and Pamela Briskman will share how Galileo works within unusual constraints to design curriculum and implement hiring and training systems that support a culture and program that builds the creative confidence of 50,000 kids each summer.
