Olentangy Schools invites you to attend the 2020 ONE COMMUNITY Conference. A unique learning opportunity focused on supporting students with a variety of needs from all different backgrounds, the conference features national experts, local leaders and student advocates in the area of equity and inclusion. This year's event will be held Saturday, February 8, 2020 from 7:30 a.m. to 4:15 p.m. at Olentangy Orange High School, 2840 E. Orange Road, Lewis Center.

This year’s theme, Inspiring a Community of Changemakers, encourages us to situate ourselves in a place of action. Together, we will reflect on our sphere of influence and identify opportunities to make change in our own lives, relationships, workplaces, and communities. As you will see from our student keynote presenters, you are never too young to start making a difference in this world.

As a conference attendee, you will have the opportunity to listen to outstanding keynote speakers, interact with student participants, and engage with session presenters on issues impacting our community and young people. Also, in the spirit of ONE Community, you will be presented with many rich moments to learn alongside and build relationships with fellow attendees. Through the exchange of differing perspectives and experiences, we can truly build ONE community.

For details about the conference schedule, workshops, and keynote speakers and presenters, please view the Event Overview Document.

This is a free event and families are encouraged to come for all or part of the day.
