Our Convening and Leadership Superpower
Horizons is where learners, workers, educators, employers, and leaders from across the learn-and-work ecosystem come together to drive equitable economic advancement for all. It’s where we explore the newest ideas for transforming the field—and center the voices of the people most impacted by the transformation. At Horizons, we recognize the issues that might divide us, and commit to hearing each other’s stories and finding a path toward collaboration.
[If] we want to tackle a problem, it is better that we do it not in a silo and in isolation, but that we bring our forces together to truly have an impact on people’s lives.Valerie Jarrett, Horizons 2023
At a time of political division across our country, we take a nonpartisan approach that emphasizes results. As Washington State Rep. Greg Cheney said at the 2023 summit: “Lasting policy generally tends to be bipartisan. That doesn’t mean everybody gets what they want; it means everybody’s sitting around a table finding solutions.” For the learn-and-work ecosystem, Horizons sets that table for everyone working to achieve equitable economic advancement for all.
