What We Do

Fostering Dialogue

Through a variety of formats, Center Forward brings leaders together to address the most pressing issues facing the country.

At Center Forward, we believe in fostering meaningful dialogue and collaboration among a diverse group of stakeholders to drive positive change in policymaking. Much of our work focuses on organizing a range of convenings that bring together an array of influential participants, including elected leaders, Executive Branch officials, government staff, business leaders, advocacy organizations, political leaders, and other policy influencers. Our events feature a variety of formats, including informative panel discussions, government staff briefings featuring expert witnesses, interactive roundtable discussions, policy conferences, networking receptions, and much more. Through these gatherings, we provide a platform for sharing insights, exchanging ideas, and building consensus on critical issues.
