In February 2015, Transform Education Kentucky hosted its inaugural Innovate:Education, an education summit bringing together leaders from business and education to work on issues of innovation in public education. The event grew to nearly 200 attendees in 2016 and featured Kentucky-native Allan Houston as the luncheon keynote.

Through that event, and other initiatives, we have built a particular expertise as a convener.  In three years, we’ve hosted more than 20 events across the Commonwealth and reached over 1,000 participants. Though these efforts have been highly successful, we believe one important piece is missing—bringing together all stakeholders (educators, business leaders, parents, community leaders, etc.) in the same place, at the same time. Progress in education is limited without the full support and partnership of all constituents—both public and private—to help ignite and sustain positive change for the success of all students. It’s time we bring together a diverse group of partners who share the same vision and passion and are willing to invest a personal stake in students’ success.

That’s why Transform Education Kentucky is currently working to expand the Innovate:Education series. To find out more about the expansion of this project, you can view our concept paper here. If you’d like to support these efforts or find out how an Innovate:Education event could take place in your area, please contact amanda@thefundky.org.
