A Survivor-Centric Approach
Agenda is DRAFT and subject to change.
The OVS 2022 Seeking Solutions Summit is a 1.5 day event that will take place at The Marriott Albany, located at 189 Wolf Road in Albany, NY. Participants will be divided into 2 cohorts (cohort A and cohort B), and will rotate through all 4 breakout sessions throughout the event. Participants will come together for welcome remarks, a special keynote with Chaplain Clementina M. Chéry, and an expert panel discussion. We encourage participants to join us on Day 1 for a networking reception after the day's events.
As space for this event is limited, we encourage those able to attend the full session to register.
