Participating in the 2021 OYW Summit

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the One Young World organization postponed its October 2020 Summit to April 23-26, 2021 taking place in Munich, Germany. As much as we, Johnson & Johnson Global Community Impact, would have loved to offer our young leaders the opportunity to join the OYW Summit in Munich in a face to face setting, the safety and health of our employees and that of our external young health scholars is our first priority. With COVID-19 still spreading across the globe, we have decided to join the Summit 100% virtually.
