You're Invited to the Opportunity International 2018 Summit in Minneapolis

We are at an unprecedented point in human history: for the first time ever, ending extreme poverty is within reach. 

Since 1990, extreme poverty around the world has been cut in half. Global leaders remind us that we have reason to be optimistic; that no matter how many challenges we still face, things are actually getting better. 

Join us this fall to celebrate the progress we have made so far, and look to the future with a renewed sense of possibility. 

Connect with old friends, and meet a new group of like-minded peers. Learn from international thought leaders as they share more about trends and innovations in our industry. Meet members of Opportunity's global staff who serve our clients in the field each and every day. And hear from the visionaries who are charting our collective course forward.

The Summit is your chance to join in the conversation about how we are going to tackle extreme poverty once and for all—together.
