Thank you to all of our 2019 OpportunityTalks partners! Together we made a million-dollar difference.

“Education is the key to unlocking the world” – Oprah Winfrey

Washington companies hold the key to access and success for Washington students. Together we are opening a robust workforce pipeline to meet our state’s demand for highly skilled workers, now and in the future.

This signature fundraising event raises $1 million dollars annually in support of the mission of the WSOS, and draws 1,000 corporate decision makers, community leaders, elected officials and education partners to a free breakfast. in 2019 we filled the Sheraton Grand Seattle to capacity with engaging Scholar stories and a dynamic keynote address by New York Times bestselling author, Adam Grant.

Together we hold the key to Washington jobs for Washington students.
