“We prize achievement over activity.”



The Washington Institute for Business, Government and Society is a convener of people and ideas at the intersection of business, government and society. We drive conversations from Capitol Hill and conference rooms to lecture halls and living rooms. We host events, write op-eds, produce podcasts, publish reports and engage in debates on social media—all to stimulate cooperation, meaningful action and tangible results. We know that complex problems require new, creative approaches. And innovation can only happen when we focus on tangible, measurable achievements, not just endless activity.
