About this conference

For the eighth year, the Washington Ideas Forum will convene the nation's premiere thought leaders for two days of idea sharing and deep conversation. From the heart of the nation's capital, the Forum will tackle issues from politics and policy, to race and justice, to education and technology and beyond.

Top speakers and discussions include:

  • House Speaker Paul Ryan

  • The Atlantic's Ta-Nehisi Coates in discussion with Harvard President Drew Gilpin Faust and Georgetown President John J. DeGioia about how those storied academic institutions are addressing their anti-abolitionist pasts

  • Author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

  • With six CEOs, five cabinet secretaries and countless other luminaries confirmed so far, we're excited to share the growing list of speakers attending this year's Forum. See below for a list of the politicians, philosophers, artists, economists, doctors and commentators that will be sharing their biggest ideas.

    This year, the Forum is expanding across the week. With events happening all around DC, participants can watch the Presidential debate with beltway insiders, catch a film screening or enjoy networking nights with some of the nation's top minds and industry leaders. Visit the Washington Ideas Week page to learn more about these Forum-adjacent events.
