The Common Good brings together top thought leaders from government, business, academia and culture for informed, spirited and civil dialogue around the urgent issues of the day.

We are dedicated to recreating the public square through reasonable discourse and a free exchange of ideas. This open dialogue helps to create the environment for good policy and the common ground to implement it.
