Who We Are

The Washington Institute for Business, Government and Society is a global nonprofit organization created to bridge critical gaps by facilitating collaboration between public and private sector leaders. As a nonpartisan translator and global voice, we stimulate cooperation and meaningful action, leading to tangible results.

We bring together proven leaders from corporate foundations, government Institution, nonprofit organizations, trade associations, businesses, academia and other entities relevant to our goals and mission. Our Board of Governors and Advisory Council are made up of former heads of state, chief executive officers of major corporations, distinguished academics, award-winning journalists and other accomplished leaders who help define today’s global environment. The Council also includes young people who hold promise as tomorrow’s trailblazers.

We are fiercely independent and determined to address vital, often overlooked issues.

Our decisions and actions are informed by decades of experience. We are not confined by a legacy to uphold. Rather, we are focused on the one we are creating today by shaping the world together.
