Fostering Citizenship in a Rapidly Changing World

February 4, 2017 • 8:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.

King School, Stamford, CT

By establishing connections between global and local issues as they relate to leadership and character development, we will work to define what it means to be a leader in today’s rapidly changing world. Through an open exchange of ideas, design thinking, and a deeper understanding of our strengths, the Symposium will explore ways of preparing students for an increasingly interconnected world.


Dr. Derrick Gay, the event’s keynote speaker, is an internationally recognized consultant to educational, artistic and philanthropic organizations around the world. With two decades of experience as a classroom teacher, musical director, senior administrator and educational consultant, Dr. Gay is renowned for his work on issues of diversity, inclusion and global citizenship.


We have two strands (A & B) consisting of 4 to 5 concurrent sessions. Each session within the strand should be 45 minutes including Q&A.


King School Faculty & Students will be selected to attend the event by the Global Education, Leadership LAB, Diversity and Service Learning departments. For questions, please reach out to Dr. Gilles Chosson.

External attendees can register for the event on the CAIS website.
