INFORUM 21st Century Series

Role: Director of INFORUM at The Commonwealth Club

As the director of the young professionals program at The Commonwealth Club – the nation's premier public affairs forum – I hosted lectures and panels in downtown San Francisco for intellectually curious 20 and 30 somethings.

With the help of the INFORUM board, I created the 21st Century Award to honor people under 40 who are shaping our future. Some of the people we hosted include:
King Abdullah II of Jordan
Lawrence Rinder
Tavis Smiley

The series drew lively audiences and invigorated The Club's membership with youthful energy.

Other speakers we hosted at INFORUM:
Ethan Hawke
Spike Lee
Eve Ensler
Malcom Gladwell
Deepak Chopra

21st Century Series Chair: Vanessa Richardson
