Lunch & Learn: Beyond Black History Month

Date: Mar 14, 2024
Time: 11:30 AM - 12:45 PM

We are very excited to launch our new monthly Lunch & Learn series - mark your calendars for the second Thursday of every month (event dependent, of course!).

Black History Month is a vital platform to reflect on the phenomenal contributions of Black individuals throughout history, igniting conversations and inspiring future generations. Yet, while February provides a powerful spotlight, it shouldn’t be the sole illumination. As stewards of diversity, we must move beyond and embrace a continuous celebration that recognizes and empowers Black leaders and communities 365 days a year.

The WTC Seattle welcomes two incredible local leaders to facilitate this discussion over lunch!

Lunch & Learn Details:

  • This event is capped at 15 attendees, once the limit is reached a waiting list is created
  • Each attendee will pay for their own lunch from our exciting new weekly menu which includes a beverage, starter item, and entrée for only $24
  • Bring your business cards and prepare to connect over LinkedIn as you make new connection with fellow members
  • Complimentary Valet Parking is available
