2017 Leadership Luncheon

Please join us for Thrive’s annual Leadership Luncheon! With more than 500 business, community and early learning leaders in attendance, the luncheon is a celebration of early learning and the progress that Thrive and our partners are making across the state to give young children and their families a great start.

This year, we are thrilled to welcome Geoffrey Canada, founder of the Harlem Children’s Zone, and to talk about how Washington can create more comprehensive community-wide commitments that will help every child in our state thrive!
