Scholar talking to a board member at OpportunityTalks

OpportunityTalks Sponsors

OpportunityTalks is an annual fundraising event that joins Opportunity Scholars, alums, partners, and incredible supporters for a special program each spring.

WSOS envisions a Washington where all residents have access to our state’s best jobs, and our companies have the diverse, local talent they need to innovate for the world. We remove barriers to education and help Washington students forge their path to high-demand STEM, health care, and trade careers in Washington state.

Our partners and event sponsors have helped to ensure every Opportunity Scholar has access to funding and vital career training and mentorship programming to help them fulfill their dreams. They are part of a state-wide movement of bold individuals, committed elected officials, visionary philanthropists, and innovative companies that share a drive to accelerate equitable change and improve local economies for Washington businesses.
