Education Speakers

Whether it’s a K-12 school or university, our education system prepares growing minds for an increasingly complex future. As valuable as education can be, it’s rife with inequity, funding problems, and conflict. Trust WSB’s roster of First Ladies, nonprofit leaders, former educators, and other education speakers to create the honest discourse we need to design a future-focused educational system. Available for in-person or virtual events and meetings.
