Making Schools Safe For Students, Faculty and Staff
Out of the Box: Beyond the Gender Binary
Tuesday, February 3, 2015
8:30 AM to 2:30 PM
Roland Park Country School

Our keynote speaker this year is iO Tillett Wright, who is an artist, writer, speaker, and social scientist. iO’s work primarily deals with identity, be it through her fine art portraiture, or her ongoing activism campaign, Self Evident Truths. iO regularly travels the country lecturing at events and schools, encouraging people to broaden their ‘circle of normalcy, and expand their sphere of empathy.
Join us as we examine conventional “circles of normalcy” – the labels we apply to one another, often inaccurate, confining, even hurtful – and explore ways to be more empathetic, to suspend judgments and labels, and to treat one another with the very kindness and respect found at the core of school missions.
