Over the coming weeks, while the Spring 2020 Forum is on hiatus, we’ll be sharing fascinating conversations from past Forum guests.
Our guests come from diverse backgrounds and have included the likes of former Mayor Willie Brown, neurologist Robert Sapolsky, Secretary George Shultz and author Joyce Maynard, but the point of The Forum is singular: civil, sophisticated discourse that engages minds and hearts to think in new ways about the world
You can explore the broad range of conversations via the links below and find the full list of guests on The Forum’s page.
| The Forum with Christine Carter: The New Adolescence

| The Forum with Robert Sapolsky: At Our Best and Worst
In conversation with Malcolm Young, Sapolsky answers the question: why we do the things we do…for good and for ill and builds on this understanding to wrestle with some of our deepest and thorniest questions relating to tribalism and xenophobia, hierarchy and competition, morality and free will, and war and peace.
|The Forum with George Shultz: Global Climate Action
