Council Program Audience


We host leaders, scholars, authors, and changemakers in conversation – the people shaping our world. As a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization, we are committed to promoting understanding through programming that encompasses varied perspectives and experiences, providing a full picture of people, issues, and cultures.

Our mission is to educate and engage – not advocate.
