The Pacific Council embraces the inclusion of all voices in our community, across our membership, staff, event speakers, and guests, regardless of race, ethnicity, ability, class, religion, age, gender identity, sexual orientation, or any other differentiating characteristic.
To solidify and guide our commitment to inclusivity and diversity, the Pacific Council has formed a staff committee dedicated to creating programs and opportunities that elevate underrepresented voices in our membership. Our Pay It Forward Annual Giving Campaign, launched in 2016, aims to build a network of tomorrow’s thought leaders from all corners. We also continue to fulfill a promise made at the beginning of 2017 to feature women experts on all of our panels.
We welcome and support diversity in all its forms; indeed, we believe it is the only way to effect change on global issues.
