About Us

Inspire Dialogue Foundation

Growing Wisdom, Changing People.

Helping diverse minds meet to shape a better future.

Many of our problems today seem intractable, whether they be extreme conflicts in locations like the Middle East or deep race, gender and socioeconomic divisions across the planet. Many philanthropists, civil society groups, government officials and young people share the same concerns, but often problems are too complex for any one group or individual to tackle. We all hold a piece of the solution. When different minds and experiences come together in a focused, disciplined way, we gain a more holistic perspective on issues that seem insurmountable. New and better solutions emerge.

That conviction underlies the creation of the Inspire Dialogue Foundation. The Foundation has a unique power to convene individuals from a wide cross section of society, and has developed new ways to create dialogue and collaboration. Many initiatives bring together people who already have a lot in common, and lack the energy and insights that true diversity – of age, experience and background– brings. Collective problems require collective solutions. We all share the same concerns, the same problems as members of the human race. By joining together wisdom and compassion, and seeking to understand ‘the other’ on a deeper level, we can find shared solutions. We seek to foster true collaboration through dialogue.
