NETWORK | INFLUENCE | EDUCATE
Sourcing 7 is the first non-profit professional organization dedicated to talent sourcing in the Pacific Northwest.
Sourcing 7 (S7+) supports anyone who identifies as a talent sourcing, research, or recruiting professional in the pursuit of career excellence.
S7+ is a professional special interest community (SIC) of the Northwest Recruiters Association (NWRA). Comprised of talent sourcers, recruiters, and other talent acquisition professionals who share best practices, exchange techniques, and enhance the talent sourcing profession. The S7+ community was born from the grassroots effort of talent sourcers who wanted to pay it forward for this profession. We hope to accomplish this through fostering opportunities to network, influence, and educate.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
"Every city should have a Sourcing 7. The fact that people volunteer their time and speakers come and share thoughts and knowledge to make the community is simply awesome. #payitforward"
SOURCING 7 LEADERSHIP TEAM
In 2009, seven Seattle-area talent sourcing professionals began meeting at a local Starbucks to share ideas and techniques and to discuss a relatively new discipline of talent sourcing. The Internet and social media had changed sourcing, and these seven professionals were determined to get their collective heads around new ways of thinking for talent sourcing in the digital age; thus, they became the Sourcing 7.
The team, which has always consisted of 100% volunteers, desire to give back to the local community. This team is made up of Recruiters, Sourcers, and Talent Acquisition experts lending their services to respected companies in the Pacific Northwest.

Events are custom-built for the Sourcing 7 community. Our events range from hands-on workshops, to presentations, to expert panel discussions.
We've always kept events free to attend through the generosity of venues hosted by local area organizations, as well as our sponsors.
These in-person events, held at various locations around the Seattle metro area, give you the opportunity to learn from multiple presenters and ask questions. Networking opportunities before and after presentations allow for you to meet new colleagues. Live events are presented either in panel, round-table, or Ignite-style presentation format. In addition, webinars led by local community members cover tactical topics like sourcing tools, techniques, and process.
SPONSORS + HOSTS
We wouldn't be able to offer free training workshops and events without the support and partnership of our sponsors and venue hosts:
Sourcing7 is a SIG of the NWRA (Northwest Recruiter Association), and we are a 501(c)(3). As we are a non-profit organization, we rely on the generosity of our local community and our global sponsorship partners to continue serving the sourcing community through free educational events and networking opportunities.
