What is EDTalks®?

Each year The Education Alliance hosts two regional EDTalk® events across West Virginia. Each event is an education-based speaker series designed to engage business, education, and community leaders in innovative discussions about connecting education, jobs and West Virginia’s future from diverse perspectives. In 2020, The Education Alliance began hosting virtual EDTalks® by Zoom on supporting public education during the COVID-19 crisis in West Virginia.
