Immigration: What's at Stake for Families & Implications for WA Funders
12:30 PM to 3:00 PM

Immigrant and refugee children and families across Washington State – both newcomers and longtime residents – are afraid and are experiencing the direct impact of new federal immigration policies. This has created a domino effect as nonprofits are facing skyrocketing calls for assistance and services. With an expansion of detention, deportation, and priorities for enforcement, limits on refugee admissions, attempts to create a travel ban, and more, the stakes have never been higher for Washington State communities. Organizations throughout the state have been working on rapid responses with a diverse range of stakeholders in the face of critical needs in the community. Philanthropy is at a critical juncture as it considers the impact on communities it supports and funding strategies moving forward.

The World Speaker Forum: An Apprenticeship Renaissance
7:00 PM to 8:30 PM

Since the dawn of our democracy, the American dream has been about opportunity and the fact that anyone from anywhere in society can work hard and achieve success. But in the United States, since WWII, the paths to that dream have narrowed to a single route and formula that requires a university degree (and a house and car)–a path that is getting more and more expensive and doesn’t necessarily equip our nation with all of the skills we need for the future.

Ambassador Suzan Levine, former U.S. Ambassador to Switzerland and Liechtenstein, and her husband Eric Levine, founder and CEO of CellarTracker. com will share with you their insights into the Swiss Model of apprenticeship and how it can be useful in better preparing the citizenry of the United States for lifelong career readiness.
